What made us select the wines from the Champagne region in particular?
The key to the success and popularity of the Champagne region wines is owed above all to its unique geology, more precisely to the Cretacerous sediments that serve to produce pleasant levels of acidity and a fresh, full-bodied and elegant touch. The area where champagne wines may be produced is strictly defined; the vineyards only cover some 31 hectares (76 acres).
Another secret behind the success of the champagne wines is the unique combination of the grape varieties used in its production. Only three grape varieties are allowed in the production of champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and pinot Meunier. Cuvée of all three varieties is usually used and different years are even mixed to prepare the champagne basic tiers, which is unthinkable in production of quality still wines.
Naturally, champagne wines of a specific year and single-variety champagne wines are also produced, most frequently from the Chardonnay variety as Blanc de Blancs.
