Champagne Chronicles Chapter 10

Understanding the Côte des Blancs – it’s all about the chalk……

In La Champagne, the Côte des Blancs region speaks of all things white; the pure snowy white Cretaceous chalk subsoils and the white chardonnay grapes that grow upon it to yield Blanc de Blanc champagnes of exquisite minerality, finesse and aging potential of the chardonnay grape.
 
Yet within this short 20km escarpment of prized chalk, villages display their own characteristics and give rise to a plethora of Blanc de Blanc styles ranging from austere, mineral laden wines bursting with mouth-watering salinity, to those flaunting more tropical, rich, fragrant white floral notes.
 
Join us for Chapters 10 as we undertake an in-depth exploration of six of the greatest Côte des Blancs villages, and attempt to unravel the hallmarks of these classic sites.
 
Hosted by Tracy Mann, these chapters will include rare cuvées from new and exciting producers alongside some of the legendary names in Champagne. If you love Blanc de Blancs, these are two
