The wines of Hubert SOREAU and Nathalie VIGNIER

Nathalie Vignier descends from a wine growers family cultivating their vineyards in Cramant since four generations. She bought her own first vineyard in 2004, and grows Chardonnay ever since in three different plots, all of them situated on the chalky slopes of the famous Côte des Blancs south of Épernay. Here she makes a real Champagne Grand Cru, not only because of the official classification of her terroir, but also due to the care she takes for her vines and wines: Fermentation in oak barrels, a minimum use of sulphites, at least for years of bottle ageing, only natural cork for bottle closure… It needs a lot of time and patience to create beautiful things.

Hubert Soreau is a Champagne wine grower with all his heart. After arriving in the region some 20 years ago, he first acquired skills in the vineyards of a famous Champagne company, an experience that allows him to work his own vines with mindfulness and deliberation. Among his vineyards situated in the hills of Épernay, he particularly treasures his Clos l’Abbé, a plot of only 0,35 acres that has already been mentioned in the records of the Saint Martin Abby Épernay in the 17th century and who’s wines were kept under lock and key…
