Henriet-Bazin Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Villers-Marmery Champagne
At Champagne Henriet-Bazin, our history begins perhaps 50 million years ago, when two species of shellfish, the Coccolites and the Belemnites, decided to settle in the warm sea that once blanketed our region of Champagne. Over the eons, nature and time transformed their remains into the profoundly deep layers of chalk and clay that bear our vines. Wind, water and ice carved our slopes and created our climats. For five generations now, our family has worked the soil, tended our vines and crafted our wines with the unwavering desire to offer cuvees to you that express the uniquely complex and delightful terroir of our Grand-Cru and Premier-Cru vineyards.
Vinified as a homage to the exceptional Chardonnays grown on pure chalk from the Montagne de Reims, this single terroir Blanc de Blancs expresses all the freshness and the minerality specific to our Premier Cru plots in Villers-Marmery, unique village to carry only Chardonnay on a terroir dedicated to Pinot Noir
