Description

Sophie Baron Champagne comes from a family run property in Charly-sur-Marne. The Champagne...

is named after Sophie, the daughter of the founders Gabriel and Dolorès. She joined the property in 1982 and works alongside her winemaker brother, Ignace.

Vineyards

Charly-sur-Marne lies a mere 50 kilometres east of Paris along the Vallée de la Marne subregion. The Baron family owns 38 hectares of sustainably managed vineyards that are largely planted with Pinot Meunier, the dominant grape in the region.

Vinification

The Grand Réserve is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and undergoes malolactic fermentation to give it roundness. It is aged on its lees for three years and has a balanced dosage of 10g/l residual sugar.

Tasting Notes

The Pinot Meunier dominant blend gives richness and red berry fruit to this crisp and lively Champagne.
