J. Vignier

Champagne | Côte de Blancs | Cramant

Vignier’s holdings are now in the Grand Cru Villages of Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry, as well as some parcels in the Côte de Sézanne. Nathalie first worked as an insurance adjuster for wineries in Burgundy and Champagne and was called home to take over the estate by her father. She is slowly aligning the estate to her philosophy: higher ripeness, a return of oak to the cellar and no use of herbicides or pesticides. The Vignier family motto is “La bonté de l’esprit et la grandeur de courage,” which means “the goodness in spirit, and the courage to greatness.” There is a lot to look forward to from this grower in the future.

J. Vignier 2008 Millésime Brut

This is a true vintage wine from Nathalie, from the great 2008 vintage, and a blend of chardonnay from her main holdings. It comes from Cramant (“Fond de Bâtou”), Chouilly and from the chalk Sézanne parcels near Vindey. These vines in the Sézanne were planted selection massale from cuttings in her oldest parcels in Cramant. This is a classic 2008, marked by structure and aromatics: chamomile tea, honeysuckle and sweet spice. It was disgorged in the Spring 2016 and has a dosage is 5 grams with cane sugar.
