Overview

The affinity for Chardonnay on chalky soils is not unique to Champagne but anywhere this soil can be found. After years of tasting the component blends for the sparkling wines at Louis de Grenelle, we’ve always been taken with their Chardonnay. Originating exclusively from the chalky, clay-limestone soils near the village of Montreuil-Bellay, this Blanc de Blancs is aged for two years sur latte and bottled with a very small dosage of 3 g/L.
