Cuvée Coeur Saphyr - Marc Augustin - 2015
Producer: Marc Augustin
Subregion: Valée de la Marne
Aging in wood: No
Soil: Chalk, Sand, Clays and Limestone
Added S02: Yes
Tasting Notes: The ripe grapes are picked on fruit and flower days, whenever possible, only by women to maintain their fertile energy. All viticulture is geared towards producing a peaceful, symbiotic balance between all living entities. Vinification takes place in a combination of amphoras and enameled tanks to preserve the juice as good as possible. Only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation and malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. Minimal or no Sulphur is added. The wines are disgorged 22 months after harvest. The Cuvée Coeur Saphyr is a very special champagne. This is the only 100% meunier champagne from Augustin Champagnes. The champagne is vinified with a Saphyr in the amphora and carries an incredible energy.
