Benoit is a 5th generation winemaker turning to very innovative and anything-but-conventional methods at his family domaine. The conversion to organics and biodynamics aside, his vineyard practice employs horses and aromatherapy, and to walk around the cellar you’ll find barrels painted purple and small Buddhas perched as if to watch over the room. It is easy to tell he takes great care in every step of what he does, in hopes, and execution, of finding balance. not just in his winemaking, but also in life.
This Champagne hails from the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, known for exceptional Pinot Noir. It's a Champagne that transcends above other sparkling options, a style excellent for richer, winter fare, not just for appetizers.
