Roland Champion Champagne Le Mont Aigu Chardonnay Brut Nature
Champagne Roland Champion
France - Champagne   

Each year Champagne Roland Champion will be featuring a single vineyard from their Estate Grand Cru Chouilly. This year, they crafted this unique Cuvée from the parcel called LE MONT AIGU as it is their favorite from the 2017 vintage. This parcel is part of the historic vineyard of the Estate and is planted with Chardonnay grapes. The wine coming from this particular parcel has a great personality and reveals purity from the terroir of Chouilly. No liquor of Dosage was added in order to let the Terroir, the wine and the Nature express themselves.

Mont Aigu displays beautiful notes of citrus, as well as exotic and spicy aromas. It is very fresh on the palate, then develops into a generous and full-bodied mouthfeel, with a long crunchy and mineral finish.
