A Champagne make with grape juice !?

Yes, it is. To preserve a maximum the taste, the aromatic and the quality of the grapes and minimise the addition of produc .

They do a tirage liquor based with the grape juice of the year harvest.

This creates a Champagne more complex, with a palette of aromas broader and a richer silky texture going toward white fruit.

Beautiful shades of bitters on the finish.
