    ABOUT THIS WINE

    Made in a traditional Brut style, Adrien intends this cuvée as representation of all of three of the villages he works with - Sezanne, Cuis, and Avenay Val d'Or. The blend is 50% Chardonnay from Sezanne, 30% Pinot Noir from Avenay Val d'Or and 20% old vine Pinot Meunier from Cuis. The base vintage makes up 70% of the blend with the remainder a perpetual reserve going back to 1986. Dosage is 6g/L. 

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

    In 1986, Eric Dhondt and Edith Grellet decided to stop selling off grapes to negociants and started Dhondt-Grellet. Their focus on farming translated into honest Champagnes from great holdings across the Côte des Blancs.

    Their son, Adrien, now in his 20s, has taken over the winemaking and is quickly bringing his family's wines to another level. He has slowly increased the range of Champagnes produced by isolating their holdings across the villages of Cramant and Cuis and bottling pure expressions of Chardonnay. 

    With parcels in Cramant and Cuis, Dhondt Grellet focuses on producing superb wines from the Cote des Blancs. Adrien Dhont-Grellet, the son of the founders, is currently in charge and makes the wines. He is focusing on biodynamic farming which has translated into vivid champagnes from great parcels across the Côte des Blancs.
