Nature de Craie is vinified without any addition of sufites to naturally express the terroir, the grape variety, and Aurélien Laherte's intuition. The Chardonnay grapes come from the beautiful Côte des Blancs, on the Vertus and Voipreux terroirs located on the lower chalky slopes. The vines were planted in 1960, 1965 and 1987.
