A word on solera method

To know everything about the solera/perpetual reserve method: a new way to understand the wine but definitely not a new method to make it. Indeed, the traditional concept in Champagne is the blending. Vintage, the plots etc, but it goes in total opposition of this rule: making a vintage or what we call a “millésime”.

Every year, we add to our barrel, the most of the year to compensate for the racked wine. However, this method is perfect to educate the young wine  by the oldest one. It’s also a good way to find exactly the same style in ourRatafia champenois Grandes Années Chardonnay in Solera method. “A true guiding principle”. The method provides to our ratafias some body, gluttony and depth. Our spirits are invitations to go back in time, browse through the vintages. In other words, we’re started in 2014, this is 5 harvests, 5 years that you will find in this oak barrels.

The Pinot Blanc ratafia is produced from one of the “forgotten grapes varities” of Champagne. Pinot blanc, Arbonne, Petit meslier, Pinot gros… Here are the names of the “forgotten grapes varities” of Champagne. Thesefour represent less then 0.3% of the Champagne vineyard. But why are they called “forgotten”? Quite simply because they are more fragile and less productive or have a very long maturation. Today, some winemakers are continuing to produce chamapgnes with them. Champagne Julien Chopn decided to use them for ratafia production !
