J. Vignier QVFMR "Les Vignes d`Henri" Grand Cru Extra-Brut

This year’s QVFMR release is “Les Vignes d’Henri” which is a blend of 2006-2007 and solely comes from Natalie’s grandfather’s original parcel in Cramant. It was made in the old way: pressing in the traditional coquard press and fermentation in old Burgundy barrels from Maratray-Dubreuil. Vignier no longer uses the coquard press in normal production now, and instead uses pneumatic presses. Next year’s Cuvée Ephémère release will be a parcel from Natalie’s grandmother, which will be all 2008 from Chouilly, which was also made in the old way. The marriage of these two ancestors brought these the Grand Cru vineyards together for the first time at this estate. Only 780 bottles were made of “Les Vignes d’Henri.”
