75% of our activity takes place in our vine yards. It is the origin of the quality of the wine that starts from the very first moments.
It's at least 15 month later (for us, is 24 month later in order to assure a better quality) and after the sparkling, the first bottles can be prepared and place on your table, for drinking.
After the riddling period, to eliminate the deposit (sediment), bottles are disgorged and dosaged to become a Champagne Brut Sec or Demi Sec. The Champagne is definately labelled and it can be put on your table for degustation.
Between bottling and sale, we always respect a minimum period of 2 years for Cuvée Carte Blanche and sometimes until 10 or more years for vintages.
Champagne wine making is a number of very precised handling that require particular expertise. From pressing to the alcoholic fermentation, blending to the riddling, disgorging to the dosage, until the time the bottle arrives on your table, every stage is made in respect of tradition Champenoise according to the methods of father to son.
For each House, the most crucial moment is the blending. Once a year, such a ritual, Béatrice and Hubert FAGOT in the company of their oenologist blend with subtlety still wine and reserved wine, region and grapes varieties depending on their sensitivity and emotions. Therefore, they create this unique and inimitable style wich reflects the character of the vineyard's winemaker.
