According to the French philosophy, wine is an expression of the soil, the climate, and the culture created by man: the terroir. Nowhere it is better expressed than in the wines from different regions of France wine country.

What would Pinot Noir be without Burgundy and the Cistercian monks? What would be Cabernet Sauvignon without the water-permeable gravelly soils on the so-called left banks of the Gironde in Bordeaux? And what about Champagne without chalk soils and the ground-breaking knowledge of Dom Pérignon, who called out the other monks while drinking his first self-produced sparkling Champagne: “Come quickly. I drink stars.”

“Wine is inextricably linked to place. Its character and flavour rely on the interaction between winemaking and viticulture techniques, grape variety and the combination of the physical environment of the region in which the grapes are grown.”

– Hall & Mitchell

For the champagne production, the main grape varieties are Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay.

“Come quickly. I drink stars.”

Dom Pierre Pérignon
