It’s time for the tasting. On this sunny day, Nathalie and her husband Gilles invited us to sit outside in the courtyard. They have a wide range of varieties including 9 cuvées and 2 ratafias.
Among them, a very special vintage! They brought out a bottle entirely covered in sand. So, why was that? This bottle had spent eight months in the Atlantic Ocean. It seems that this period under water gives this champagne a slight taste of iodine… What a wonderful concept!
Between the two tastings, Gilles gave us a demonstration of disgorging on the fly. Precise, efficient and impressive!
We had a wonderful time with Nathalie and Gilles! Their knowledge of champagne and the vineyards is fascinating, their champagne is delicious and their smiles, contagious.
