Description

CHAMPAGNE EXTRA BRUT PREMIER CRU BLANC DE BLANCS MAGNUM
GREAPE VARIETY
Chardonnay 100%
TASTING NOTES
Agronomic practices respecting the environment and fauna, but above all the farming tradition, are the starting point for all Sébastien Crucifix champagnes. Indeed, for the past 10 years, in his vineyards, all Premier Cru, neither herbicides nor insecticides are used, and the harvest is strictly carried out by hand, with sorting directly in the field. The Chardonnay harvested is therefore healthy and perfectly ripe. The grapes are pressed and the must obtained is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The resulting base wine is then bottled to begin the long and delicate process of frothing, where it will age for at least 4 years before disgorging. In the glass, this Blanc de Blancs is pale gold in colour with a fine, persistent perlage. The nose is immediately striking with pink grapefruit followed by sweet notes of hawthorn and acacia flowers. In the mouth, bread and pastry notes are dominant with a finish of acacia honey that balances the marked freshness revealing a long and generous sip. CRUCIFIX PÈRE & FILS cultivates its vines with the utmost respect for its terroir. Durable Viticulture (V.D.C.) and High Environmental Value (H.E.V.) are the continuation of their commitment and family values handed down over five generations. The Magnum bottle is ideal for enjoying among friends and has a more interesting evolution than the standard bottle.

Crucifix Père et Fils

Crucifix Père et Fils Discover Maison Crucifix Père et Fils and its fine Champagnes in our online store The Montagne De Reims is a forested promontory with a height of no more than 300 m. It stretches between the cities of Reims and Epernay and lies between the Marne and Vesle rivers. The terrain in this area is unique and is characterized by the important presence of chalk at depth that acts as a water reservoir. The undisputed king of this area is Pinot Noir. André Gabriel already in the 1940s was one of the few winemakers who realized the great potential of the grapes he grew in this area and decided to establish his own champagne brand. In 1960 André's daughter and son-in-law Pierre Crucifix took over the family business and developed their own label: Champagne Pierre Crucifix. In 2005, with the fifth generation of winemakers, Sébastien Crucifix renamed the company Crucifix Père & Fils, together with his wife Carole developed his cuvées while maintaining the traditions of his ancestors and cultivating his 5 hectares of Premier Cru without herbicides and insecticides for more than 10 years.
