Colin Cuvée Parallèle Champagne Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru

$95.00

This rare and delicate 100% Chardonnay Extra-Brut cuvee is a blend of our Premier Cru vineyard’s best Chardonnays. It has delicate bubbles, a bouquet of blossom, a mineral mouth with notes of biscuit and a low dose of sugar that reveals all the authenticity of our Chardonnays. This champagne is an ideal companion for your aperitifs or with shellfish.

Composition

100% Chardonnay. It combines 60% of grapes of the year with 40% of reserve wines. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. Aged on lees: 18-30 months.

This champagne is dosed at 3gr/l. This champagne is an extra brut champagne.

Tasting Notes

The nose initially bursts with notes of ripe wheat and fresh hay before taking you on a more floral journey with aromas of aniseed, bergamot and green tea. The olfactory world is rich and dense finished with softly buttery and indulgent notes, marzipan and candied citrus.

The salty character makes its mark in the mouth with a hint of liquorice. The wine’s sharpness floods in with citrus fruits that pop in the mouth. It finishes on bitter orange and citrus peel elevated by a delicately woody and tannic feel.

Best served with seafood carpaccio, oysters, scallops, asparagus and parmesan risotto, veal grenadine with girlies, mature Comte cheese, Époisses cheese 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.
