This wine is based around the 2018 vintage, topped up with reserve wines from 2012 and 2013. The grapes are sourced from 3 different Grand Cru villages of the Cotê des Blancs - Avize, Oger and Cramant. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel followed by 3 years maturation sur lie. Zero dosage.

With history dating back to the early 1800s, it was not until the late 90s through inheritances, that the current holdings of Waris-Hubert came together across the grand cru villages of Avize & Cramant and the premier cru village of Grauves.

In total, Olivier and Stéphanie farm over 11ha. The vineyards are farmed biodynamically with incredible attention to detail. Horses plow the 90 year old vines. The wines are produced with low dosage to allow the sites to truly express themselves. Olivier keeps careful notes on each of his cuvées, 42 in total, recording where the grapes originated from (plot by plot), the acidity, alcohol and other pertinent information. All of which is critical when it comes to putting the blends together. A task for the whole family.

The final outcome is 11 very distinct Champagnes, each selected for specific characteristics and the expression of their terroir.
