Terroir Notes: The Les Beaux Regards blanc de blancs is sourced from two extraordinary plots of old-vine Chardonnay in Ludes, where the domaine is based in the Montagne de Reims. These are the lieux-dits Les Beaux Regards, planted in 1902 by Raphaël’s great-grandfather, and Les Clos, planted in 1970 by massal selection. These ancient vines give Les Beaux Regards its deep concentration and intensely chalky minerality.
Winemaking Notes: Fermentation occurs slowly with native yeast in barrels. The wine ages on its lees. Second fermentation happens under cork. The bottle rests for 36 months before disgorgement by hand. Dosage is 3 g/L.
