TRADITION, EFFORT AND A LOT OF PASSION
FOR A CHAMPAGNE THAT STANDS OUT

The Comte de Montaigne champagne is considered today a vineyard champagne because it has a strong taste bond with the terroir, intended as the microclimate and the mineral characteristics of the land where it is cultivated. All of that has repercussions also on the wine cellar where is preferred to do things like the old days, with spontaneous fermentations, use of wood, and above all work with a lot of commitment and effort. Everything to create a champagne with a strong personality, with a vinous character and not only effervescent.

EACH COMTE DE MONTAIGNE CHAMPAGNE
HAS A UNIQUE STORY

It begins with the blend which occurs between January and April when the several cuvées produced by the first fermentation are tasted regularly.

The process continues with the second fermentation in bottle and the ageing of yeasts which for Comte de Montaigne is twice longer compared to the minimum required by the procedural guideline. A way to bring out the complexity of wines.

After a long rest the yeasts make a sediment, which it is necessary to concentrate it in a single point of the bottle: the cork. At this point, the very ancient technique of the remuage by hand on wooden pupitres begins. The bottles are placed horizontally and then rotated and tilted for thirty times in one or two months, then placed in a vertical position with the cork down.

After this stage, the next procedures are the disgorgement, the dosage and to conclude the labelling of our cuvées in all sizes: half bottles, bottles, magnum, jeroboam.

The bottles are aged for 36 months, without any light and oxygen, at a constant temperature of 10,5°C.
