Champagne Jacquesson Dizy-Corne Bautray
From the winemaker:
At the top of a steep slope facing south-west; clay and alluvial silt filled with millstone grit gravel on Campanian chalk. 9,000 vines planted to Chardonnay over 1 hectare in 1960. Chablis 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 28 September 2008, 11°5 alcohol, 8.3 gr/l acidity.
