Wine Region: France

Grape: Meunier

Tasting Note

The champagne displays a pale yellow gold hue with light straw yellow highlights. The fine bubbles, actively feeding the delicate mousse around the rim, are very visible through the clear, fairly fluid surface. The champagne looks as if it is fresh and rich. At first the champagne has an elegant, floral profile on the nose, with fragrances of lilies and linden. The bouquet then becomes richer with fruit scents such as lime, apricot, pistachio, candied peach, sweet almond, bergamot, mirabelle plum and a delectable touch of apple tatin. Original, stylish, and deliciously drinkable. Supple and fresh on entry to the palate, with creamy effervescence. Lovely dense fruit pulp comes through on the palate, underpinned by aromas of plum, pistachio, mandarin and orange peel. This delicious momentum is framed by exhilarating acidity along with elegant limestone and clay minerality. The whole gives a sensation of crisp fruit lingering on the finish with dry, tasty substance

About the Winery

The roots of Champagne Dom Caudron are in Passy-Grigny, a village in the Marne Valley where a famous priest, Aimé Caudron, had a visionary and promising idea. Vine growers of Passy-Grigny lived off the sales of their grapes without reaping their rewards so Dom Caudron gave them the idea of joining forces in 1929. 

They obtained a production site, tools and pressing equipment to tap into, produce and showcase the fruit of their shared passion : the Meunier.

They have since brought together their expertise to elaborate a gourmet Champagne which everyone enjoys. The Priest Caudron became the embodiment of their Champagne so he could continue to enjoy wine made entirely of Meunier and by the vine growers.

Meunier remained these vine growers’ signature grape. In-depth knowledge of the original grape variety has given rise to a range of champagnes which unveil its fruity personality in all its forms, from the simplest to the most complex. The vineyard originally covered 12 hectares. It now covers more than 130 hectares on the Marne Valley’s hillsides.
