Laculle Brut Rose Champagne

Chervey is a small commune in the Aube department. The vineyards of this south-eastern extremity range from 160 to 300 meters above sea-level, making them the highest of the appellation. The Cotes des Bar benefits from both continental and more temperate maritime influences. This terroir is particularly well suited to Pinot Noir, which reaches full maturity, creating a vinous Champagne with a strong personality. Hand harvest, a skin contact method, maceration in large wooden vats for 4 days at 18 degrees Celsius. Fermentation with natural yeast, whenever possible, in stainless steel tanks, 36 months on the lees, 9g/l of dosage.

The domaine consists of 10 sustainably farmed hectares in the Cotes des Bar. The Laculle family has been making Champagne in the small village of Chervey, nestled in the Cotes des Bar, for the past three centuries. The family’s winemaking activity dates back to 1789. From this year of the French Revolution onwards, each generation has followed in the family’s wine-making footsteps. Patrick took over the family business in 1980 and married Agnes Moutard in 1986. Today the domaine is run by Patrick and his three sons.
