Father and son team Didier and Clement Vergnon - representing the 4th and 5th generations to helm this tiny estate - have cemented their place amongst the truly elite producers of grower Champagne. Exacting attention in the vineyard and cellar, with guidance from renowned oenologist Julian Goût, the Vergnons produce racy yet balanced bubbles from the chalky wonderland that is Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
This Champagne has many things going for it. It is made from 100% Chardonnay from the 2010 vintage. All fruit comes from two different sites in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil - Les Chetillons and Mussettes. The vines are 40-60 years in age. The wines is raised completely in tank with no oak. It will then fulfill its ageing on the lees for 84 months (seven years) before release.
