CHAMPAGNE EXTRA BRUT PREMIER CRU BLANC DE NOIRS
GREAPE VARIETY
100% Pinot Noir
TASTING NOTES
The clay-limestone soil on which the Pinot Noir vines grow, at least 35 years old, is well exposed to the south ensuring full ripeness of the grapes. Manual harvesting, the use of only the flower must, fermentation at a very low temperature, batonage, aging in medium toasted oak barrels and the absence of blending are all factors that contribute to the creation of a champagne with a golden color and fine, persistent perlage. On the nose we find a distinct ripe yellow apple, notes of pastry and almonds. In the mouth it is juicy, fresh and slightly savory. For those who like fresh champagnes we recommend drinking it within the first 2 years after disgorgement. A storage period of 5 to 15 years will also guarantee you great tasting experiences. CRUCIFIX PÈRE & FILS cultivates its vineyards with the utmost respect for its terroir. Durable Viticulture (V.D.C.) and High Environmental Value (H.E.V.) are a continuation of their commitment and family values passed down for five generations.

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.
