The Côte des Blancs is located in the department of Marne (51), and extends from the south of the town of Epernay to the gates of Sézanne, over a 20 km strip. The slopes are mainly oriented to the east and south-east.
The climate, of an oceanic type with continental influence, provides sunshine, rainfall and temperatures conducive to the development of Chardonnay.
What the specialists are saying...
« The qualities of the soil and subsoil are very important for the vine. The Champagne soil is essentially chalky and that of the Côte des Blancs will bring essential elements to the personality of this grape variety. It will indeed allow a particular mineral nutrition and the maintenance of humidity at the root of the vine.
On the upper slopes are more clayey areas, which will produce reserve wines, which will be refined over the years. A diversity of soil that brings a real richness to the Côte des Blancs and highlights the know-how of the Champagne winegrowers. Thanks to a perfect knowledge of the vine and their terroir, they compose with the characteristics of each plot to develop their Champagne. »
