Chardonnay is the second most planted white grape variety in the world. It has a prominent place in the region’s history as the first plantings were brought from Cyprus in the 13th century.
It is the only white grape in the Champagne appellation and its presence in the Côte des Blancs results from observations over a long period. It is the grape variety that best adapts to the chalky subsoil, producing the finest expression of our terroir The remarkable characteristics of Chardonnay’s finesse and elegance are beyond compare. In its youth, it often expresses notes of white fruits and flowers, which evolve to buttery, brioche or hazelnut notes in more mature wines.
