The Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs from Maison Guy Michel et Fils is a pure Chardonnay that brings to the glass the floral finesse and fruity richness of excellent quality grapes. It is a bottle with a fresh and mineral profile, characterised by an immediate drinking pleasure. The taste retains its youthful aromatic fragrance, enhanced by refined hints of tertiary evolution. It is the ideal bottle to enjoy as an aperitif, with seafood hors d'oeuvres or to bring to the table to accompany a fish menu with simple and delicate flavours.

Brut Blanc de Blancs by Guy Michel et Fils is a label made with artisan care, by a Maison of Recoltant Manipulant. The domaine's beautiful vineyards are located a few kilometres south of Épernay, the true capital of Champagne. The cuvée comes from a careful selection of grapes from the best Chardonnay parcels on the estate. At the end of the harvest, the grapes from each individual vineyard are vinified separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, so that a wide range of vins clair is available. After several months of ageing, the base wines are selected and blended. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Champenoise method, with a minimum period of 24 months' bottle ageing before dégorgement.

The Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs of Guy Michel et Fils is the result of the search for finesse and elegance typical of the great Chardonnay.  It conquers the eye with its light yellow colour and brilliant, luminous reflections, crossed by a delicate perlage that rises subtly and is very persistent. The nose offers a bouquet of great finesse, characterised by floral scents reminiscent of hawthorn and orange blossom, citrus fragrances of lemon peel, aromas of white peach, pear, golden apple, soft nuances of acacia honey and small pastries, delicate hints of almond and dried fruit. The taste is limpid and flowing, with a creamy and ripe fruit, which anticipates a finish of good taste persistence, characterized by flavor and mineral freshness.

Colour Straw yellow with brilliant reflections, fine and persistent perlage

Bouquet Delicate, lively, hints of ripe white-fleshed fruit, wild flowers, honey and bread crust

Taste Fresh, mineral, slightly sapid, enveloping and with a long finish

Guy Michel et Fils is a family-owned company that produces excellent artisanal Champagne. Thanks to an ancient savoir-faire, it can count on the experience of five generations of vignerons. The domaine is located in an area of particular value, characterised by very suitable soils and gentle hills with sunny exposures facing south, which favour an excellent maturation of the grapes, with intense and elegant aromatic profiles. The winery is located in the small village of Pierry, a few kilometres south of Épernay. This is a particularly interesting area because of its geographical location between the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte de Blanc, which allows all the main varieties of the area to be grown with excellent results.

The domaine has a total extension of about twenty hectares, divided into many small parcels located in Pierry and in the neighbouring villages. The vineyards are planted with 50% Munier, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. The vineyard park constitutes the real wealth of the Maison, which can count on grapes coming from micro-zones with slightly different soils and climate. Each parcel is vinified separately in order to highlight and enhance its different specific characteristics. Thanks to this detailed knowledge of the terroir and its expressive facets, when creating the cuvées, the chef de cave can count on a vast choice of vins clairs, enabling him to create harmonious and balanced blends each year.

In addition to the vintage wines, the Maison can also rely on a precious heritage of reserve wines from previous vintages, jealously guarded like real family jewels, which constitute a fundamental element in the creation of the sans année labels. Pressing is carried out very gently and only the first fraction of the first-pressing must is used to make Champagne. Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled steel tanks. One of the characteristics of the Maison, is to use very long periods of refinement on the lees, in order to propose mature Champagnes, evolved and characterised by considerable complexity and aromatic persistence.
