Champagne Colin Alliance Brut is a beautiful sparkling wine gem from an artisan winegrower. Women pioneered the COLIN Champagne vineyard, which is now run by Richard and Romain Colin. The passion for vines and wine began with their grandmothers Genevie?ve Prieur and Marie Louise Radet who both inherited vines from their parents. But the family's first winegrower dates back to 1829 with Constant Pie?ton, the great grandfather of Genevie?ve Prieur, Richard's and Romain's maternal grandmother.
Most of the 10-hectare estate is planted with Chardonnay - the king of grape varieties on our vineyard - in the prestigious Co?te des Blancs in Vertus, Berge?res-les-Vertus and Cuis, classified as Premier Cru Champagne and in the Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Oiry. We also grow Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in the village of Se?zanne. The rest of the vineyard lies further away in Venteuil in the Marne Valley and in Dormans.
This Brut Champagne is a blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Meunier grown in the Vertus Premier Cru and Sézanne vineyards. With its fine and lively foam, floral bouquet, crisp texture and notes of pear and sweet spices, this Champagne will be greatly appreciated as an aperitif or at cocktail parties.
"Open-knit and fresh, offering layers of apple tarte Tatin, almond cream, black currant candy and a hint of coffee liqueur. Finely textured, with a lasting, mineral-accented finish." - AN, Wine Spectator, 91 points!
Champagne Colin Alliance Brut as the perfect aperitif and with any epicurean meal, including desserts. Cheers!
