Subtle autumn flavors at the Dokhan's Bar
The harvest is now complete and local winemakers have used optimum quality grapes to develop exceptional vintage wine. The mild autumn, with its changing colors and windblown leaves, has greatly influenced our selection for November.

You can also join us on 20 Nov at 19:30 to enjoy a live jazz evening with a RP Quartet atmosphere that's guaranteed in the purest gypsy style!
We start the month with Nathalie Falmet, who took over the operation in 1993. This winemaker and oenologist is located at Rouvres Les Vignes in the Côte des Bar. She is one of the few women in Champagne to have both titles and exercise both trades simultaneously.
The Brut, composed of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, is a wine of finesse and roundness with notes of dark berries, a nice freshness and a touch of roundness.
The Rosé vintage bled "Rose Temptation" is made from a pure maceration of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, which reveals red fruit and cherry brandy. Its a delicate wine with lots of character and elegance.
Val Cornet 2009 harvest, is composed of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, part of which is undergrowth from the harvest. A rich and aromatic wine, it features sweet notes of vanilla and exotic fruits.
We are also pleased to highlight the Bonnaire home located in a listed village Cramant "grand cru". Their slogan is "Local, men and tradition." They develop their wines since 1932 in the heart of the Côte des Blancs vineyards with more than 22 hectares planted mainly with Chardonnay.
The Cuvée Tradition champagne has a great balance of fruity and attractive accents with hints of spice.
The Rosé is scented, harmonious, and fresh, made from Chardonnay and is a dominant find. It is perfectly balanced with the fruitiness of Pinot Noir.
The 2005 is a vintage Champagne with aromas of toasted butter, toasted bread with matter and persistent length.
Champagne Taittinger, located in Reims and founded in 1932, will also be honored with known and deemed vintages as the Comte de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2005 (which is the head of the house wine and will be served by the glass in the exceptional tasting) but also and more anonymous as the vintage 2006. This area, attached to the idea of artisans of champagne, is also very sensitive to the quality of tillage until the cellar.
Made from a surprising blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir from 40 different vintages, theTaittinger Brut has been kept three years in the basement of the house. It reveals aromas of peach and flowers.
Cuvée Rosé is full of freshness and finesse, red fruit (strawberry), a mixture of subtlety and elegance.
