36 parcels of vines, each with their own very definite characters, dispersed over 6.5 hectares of the finest terroirs in Champagne: Ay Grand Cru, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Mutigny, Epernay…
The ploughing and work on the vineyards are done with the loyal horse of Pouillon family, Tango. Tango’s slow and steady pace allows the soils to be tilled perfectly, even on the steepest of slopes..
Regular tilling, preservation of parcel ecosystems, use of natural farm compost. We believe that living wines can only come from living soils.
Respect for the vines’ biological rhythms, short pruning, restricted yields. We believe that the grapes should concentrate a maximum of the mineral elements of the terroir.
Hand-picking into small crates, waiting until the grapes have achieved full aromatic maturity. We believe that there is a key moment when all the mineral elements, the building blocks of aromas, have transited from the terroir to the grapes.
