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 2010 "Deux Terres" Champagne Brut

This is a true vintage wine from Nathalie, from the 2010 vintage, and a blend of chardonnay from her main holdings. It comes from 50-60 year old vines in both “Le Bateau” in Cramant and from the chalk Sézanne parcel "Les Bercottes" in Barbonne-Fayel. These vines in the Sézanne were planted selection massale from cuttings in her oldest parcels in Cramant. The wine is vinified and aged in stainless steel until bottled in May following harvest where it spends a minimum of 8 years en tirage. Current availability has spent 10 years en tirage.
