J. Vignier 2013 "Les Longues Verges" Grand Cru Brut

So, this parcel has a funny name and it’s a unique parcel at that, because it straddles the two Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly. “Verges” is an old French unit of measure, about 50 meter long, which predates the use of the metric system and hectares. This 100% Grand Cru chardonnay Champagne is an impressive offering that shows what emphasis on minerality can be found in the Côte des Blancs, and furthermore it shows the great potential of Nathalie’s care at the estate now. The wine is vinified and aged in stainless steel until bottling in May following harvest before spending a minimum of 5 years en tirage prior to disrogement.
