Champagne Jacquesson Aÿ-Vauzelle Terme
From the winemaker:
The site is mid-slope facing due south; alluvial calcareous top soil over blocks of Campanian chalk. Planted to Pinot Noir with 2,500 vines over 0.3 hectare in 1980. Cordon de Royat pruning.
2008 was a year characteristic of our northern clime: spring was cool and rainy, summer dry and windy, as was September. Proof that Champagne can produce a great vintage despite a cool growing season! Grapes picked on 25 September 2008; 10°8 alcohol, 7.2 gr/l acidity.
