La Vigne d'Or

Blanc de Meuniers

 This cuvee la Vigne d'Or (The Golden Vine) comes from vines growing for more than 50 years on a chalky-clay subsoil - the Sparnacian. This exceptional terroir, only to be found in the Marne valley, allows the Pinot Meunier grape to express itself with rare beauty. You will never forget tasting this astonishing and intense Champagne.
