Description :

It's here, in this land of secret valleys now filled with memories of Charles de Gaulle, that the monks of Clairvaux decided, in 1194, to pick grapes, store them beneath the vaulted roof of the great chapterhouse and make them into wine or, later, champagne. The Gothic columns of the monks' undercroft have been watching over the monks' grape harvests for more than eight hundred years. Today, the Calon-Egger family turns them into an elegant champagne, heir to the history of the countryside in Aube. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soil that is typical of the Côte des Bar area. Two-thirds are Pinot noir; the other one-third are Chardonnay.
