Champagne Brut Grand Cru Chardonnay by Corbon is the prestigious Blanc de Blancs of this artisan Maison. It is produced only with the best organic Chardonnay grapes in purity from the vines grown in the famous Grand Cru of Avize. Thanks to the very long period of aging on the lees (98 months), the bouquet offers rich and complex aromas, characterized by a refined expressive, vibrant and mineral purity. It is a refined Champagne Brut, dedicated to lovers of the lively and mineral purity of the great Blanc de Blancs. Floral aromas, citrus aromas, tropical hints, pastry nuances and iodized memories. Lively and taut on the palate, with deep and persistent aromas, fresh, savory and mineral finish. An uncompromising glass, which refers directly to the rich and complex chalky terroir of Avize.
The company is located in Avize in the heart of the Cote des Blanc. The land includes six hectares of 100% Grand Cru vineyards. It all began in the 1920s when Charles Corbon, who moved to Avize, began buying the vineyards and selling the grapes produced to wineries. Then in the seventies, in conjunction with the economic crisis, Claude Corbon decided to transform the company by becoming a producer. Since 2006 he has been supported by his daughter Agnes and with her he develops and perfects his Champagne project without filtration and assembly, with no addition of additives and with a minimum of three years of refinement before being put on the market. All this in order to obtain a lively, sincere and natural wine, with a strong personality and character. A champagne of excellent quality and with a refined and unique bouquet, which will amaze and excite you.
