Great earth friendly champagnes in May Dokhan's Bar
This month, we are pleased to present three winemakers producing great wine while respecting nature. With certified organic wines available, these hard workers have the same goal - to produce wine while restricting the number of chemicals used.
Pierre Peters Champagne
For six generations, the Pierre Peters family home has been making champagne in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in the village of Mesnil sur Oger. They now operate 19 hectares, producing Chardonnay exclusively at the classified Grand Cru of Avize, Cramant and of course the Mesnil sur Oger, just a few kilometers south of Epernay. Pierre Peters is too often ignored in France because for several years, they have exported a large part of their production to famous restaurants around the world.
We have chosen to highlight the cuvée «La Perle», a subtle and delicious blend of Chardonnay of eight different years. With a gentle freshness and the aroma of white flowers and citrus, this is a real vintage season!
The "extra-brut" in Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, a wine made only in the best years with a very low dosage of sugar, makes it ideal on white fish. The scent is aromatic with notes of saline, iodine, citrus and flowers, adding a very nice complexity to this great champagne.
Rosé "For Albane" is a blend of Chardonnay and Rosé bled for a gourmet, fruity champagne with raspberry notes.
We also offer a few bottles of à la coupe "les Chétillons" on the 2009 vintage. It combines power and roundness with toasted notes of almonds.
Domain De Sousa
Domain De Sousa is located in Avize, a family area with a strong identity. They work on 10 hectares and over 40 different plots on the finest terroirs of Champagne. At the head of the house since 1986, Michelle and Erick De Sousa live to the rhythm of the vineyard, an adventure where passion perpetually joins the tradition. Their three children, Charlotte, Julie and Valentin, are all trained in viticulture and are prepared to take over one day.
The cuvee Brut Tradition is a very cool assembly of Chardonnay with a hint of the three Champagne grapes. It's floral and lemony, with ripe fruit aromas and a palate that is delicately vinous. A very representative Brut Cuvée work in this house.
The Rosé is called "assembly" with 90% Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It's just a real treat, with beautiful red berries and a palate that is soft and crunchy.
The prestige cuvée 3A is a half of assembly and Chardonnay Pinot Noir only half of Grand Cru vineyards (Avize, Ay and Ambonnay) with an extra-brut dosage. A very great wine with richness and a length of freshness.
The Pouillon estate is located in Mareuil sur Ay. Created in 1947, it covers 6.5 hectares of vineyards spread over 36 different plots. This is a very dynamic area headed by Fabrice, who is a precise and very conscious winemaker.
Brut Blanc de Blancs is a real aperitif wine. It is fresh with a generous spirit and an ideal saline side to start a tasting.
The Rosé wine is called "maceration". With only Pinot Noir, the dress is almost red with pretty pink reflections, the aroma is powerful with notes of cherry brandy and the palate is fruity with matter and great elegance.
The cuvée "Les Blanchiens" 2007 has no dosage of sugar for a single year, a terroir and a grape. It is a champagne with a powerful flavour and peach aromas, notes of acacia and citrus. The palate is elegant, straightforward, and very long.
Enjoy a great evening of Jazz at the Dokhan's Bar! Rémy Oswald and his jazz band are back to illuminate the evening on Thursday, 21 May from 19:30. It will be the perfect atmosphere to enjoy our best champagnes.
