Tasting Note

The Champagne displays a pale yellow hue. It is animated by fine, lively bubbles which feed a delicate bead. The fluid, bright surface encases a fresh, cheerful looking liquid. Initially fresh and fruity on the nose with delectable apricot and apple scents, it goes on to release fragrances of clementine, honey, sweet spices, and raspberry, against a backdrop of very elegant limestone minerality. Aeration adds touches of pineapple, almond, fig, cooked red fruit, tobacco and toast to the bouquet. Supple on entry to the palate with creamy effervescence. The wine opens with dense fruit aromas reminiscent of mandarin and clementine pulp, Well coated by the limestone minerality. The balance is maintained by a fine grapefruit-like acidity. The dosage respects this citrus freshness giving us an elegant, soft finish.

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.
