ENFA001
This cuvée comes from vineyards in Chamery, Ecueil, Villedomange and Montbré, all 1er Cru villages on the Montagne de Reims.

The combination of completed malolactic and low dosage help sustain the fruit beautifully, it also brings bite and precision to the wine. Disgorged 03/20 - Dosage 4g/l.

Bertrand-Delespierre

The transition at Bertrand-Delespierre is happening seamlessly, with Adrien returning to the domaine in 2013 after studying winemaking in Avize, and Clémence in 2016 after working for a few years in marketing. The vineyards they’re inheriting are in good shape with an average age of 30yo – the soils have always been ploughed by their father to avoid using herbicides, and treatments were kept to a bare minimum.
