This Brut Champagne is a blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Meunier grown in the Vertus Premier Cru and Sézanne vineyards. With its fine and lively foam, floral bouquet, crisp texture and notes of pear and sweet spices, this champagne will be greatly appreciated as an aperitif or at cocktail parties.

Composition

65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Meunier. 60% of the year’s harvest and 40% of the perpetual reserve since 2004. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. Ages on lees: 18-30 months.

Dosed at 9gr/l, Tradition is a brut champagne.

Tasting Notes

The aromatic profile fits between a plant-based floral world and a deliciously fruity world. The nose is bursting with notes of flowers, eucalyptus, apricot, wine peach, barley sugar, quince and candied fruit.

This balanced champagne’s velvet softness comes to life in the mouth. An easy-to-drink and delicious wine oozing a sense of fulfilment and generosity. Barley sugar, gingerbread, dried fruit and orgeat syrup join violet and raspberry. A smooth, delicious and complex vintage.

Serve with smoked salmon, pan-fried langoustines and scallops, fish tartare, apple tart etc.

Meet the Grower: Champagne Colin

Women pioneered the Colin Champagne vineyard, which is now run by brothers Richard and Romain Colin. The passion for vines and wine began with their grandmothers Geneviève Prieur and Marie Louise Radet who both inherited vines from their parents. But the family’s first winegrower dates back to 1829 with Constant Piéton, the great grandfather of Geneviève Prieur, Richard’s and Romain’s maternal grandmother.

Wine-making

The harvest, hand-picked when the grapes reach perfect maturity, is then taken to a traditional wooden Coquard press as well as a pneumatic press on the property. A few months in casks give the wines time to oxygenate slowly.

At Champagne Colin, the wines are aged on the lees for at least double the minimum time required and for more than 6 months after disgorgement. Each plot is vinified separately to allow each of our terroirs to fully express its character. Thanks to these traditional methods tending vines and crafting wines, Champagne Colin champagnes are marked by finesse and elegance, and typical of the Côte des Blancs’ greatest vineyards.

The Estate

Most of the 10-hectare estate is planted with Chardonnay – the king of grape varieties in the Blanc de blancs area of Champagne, France – in the prestigious Côte des Blancs in Vertus, Bergères-les-Vertus and Cuis, classified as Premier Cru Champagne and in the Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Oiry. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are grown in the village of Sézanne. The rest of the vineyard lies further away in Venteuil in the Marne Valley and in Dormans.
