The Mouzon Leroux family has a long tradition in the cultivation of vineyards in Champagne, which dates back to 1776. Currently, they manage just over 7 hectares of land, divided into about fifty small parcels, mainly cultivated with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but also with other grape varieties authorized in the region, including Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Meunier.
Their Grand Crus estate in Verzy is located in a privileged position, on the border between the eastern part dominated by Chardonnay and the western one by Pinot Noir. This particular microclimatic condition allows to obtain very high quality grapes of the two main vines, fundamental for the production of great Champagnes.
The vineyards are managed in a biodynamic regime, with the aim of expressing the true character of the terroir in a genuine and authentic way.
Pinot Noir 60%
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).
Golden yellow color with fine and continuous perlage. The nose can perceive aromas of ripe yellow fruit, citrus peel, toasted dried fruit, pastry, vanilla and soft spices. On the palate, the wine is broad, rich and dense in aromas, with a harmonious development and a fine balance of freshness and minerality.
It can be accompanied by fish, shellfish, cheeses, appetizers and desserts. Furthermore, it is perfect for celebrating special occasions or for an informal toast with friends.
