TASTING NOTES
Pinot Meunier is cultivated on the right bank of the Marne Valley, between Epernay and Dormans. Racines is a tribute to the terroir of the Marne Valley and highlights the roots of the wonderful Meunier grape variety. The grapes are grown on the right bank of the Marne Valley and represent the essence of the Collard family heritage. The Collard Picard family has cultivated the Meunier grape variety for five generations, developing a unique expertise in its cultivation. The musts are decanted at a low temperature for 24 hours. Racines is vinified in large oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, without malolactic fermentation, and maturation on the lees in oak barrels for an average of 12-15 months. A blend of three different vintages is used, with a minimum of 65% reserve wines. The wine is matured at least four years in the cellar before release. The dosage of MCR (grape juice concentrate) is adapted to its development. The date of disgorgement is always printed on the back label. The wine is a beautiful golden colour in the glass. The nose presents intensely ripe fruit with an acidulous note reminiscent of apricots, figs and quinces. The sip combines opulence, expressiveness and freshness very effectively, framed by a refined salinity. This Champagne is truly unique.

Collard-Picard

Collard-Picard Discover Maison Collard-Picard and its fine Champagnes in our online store The Maison Collard-Picard, founded in 1996 by Olivier Collard and Caroline Picard, is a contemporary Champagne House that focuses on traditional techniques. The winery is located in Villers-sous-Châtillon, in the Vallé de la Marne, overlooking the valley. The wines produced by the winery do not undergo malolactic fermentation, thus guaranteeing their freshness and longevity. This practice, although uncommon in Champagne, is used by Collard-Picard to ensure the long-term expressiveness of its wines. The house's champagnes are known for their strong connection to the land and the distinctive character imparted by the Pinot Meunier grape. Collard-Picard champagnes are characterised by a combination of noble vineyards in the Vallée de la Marne and the prestigious terroir of the Côte des Blancs, where chardonnay is the dominant grape. The winery's approach is gentle and nature-oriented, with the aim of maintaining a harmonious relationship with the environment. The result of these factors is a high level of excellence in the wines.
