    Champagne Lacroix

    , ,
    The history of Champagne Lacroix-Triaulaire started as soon as 1917: two families represented by two men from Aube region – one is a farmer, the other one runs a local hardware store – they meet and they become friends during the Great War. Ten years later, the lives of their respective children, Lucienne Cosson and Jacques Lacroix, begin a new bloodline. Living at first from livestock breeding and cereal crop, Jacques, with his brother Jean, decide quite early to find a farm to take over so as to continue the passion for working the land inherited from their ancestors. In the late 1950’s, when the Ministry of Agriculture launched large projects of land clearance in the Aube region, the family Lacroix took the occasion to write the first chapter of their history: they owned more than 250 hectares then and bred up to 700 sheep. On 3rd October 1951, the love between Lucienne and Jacques was marked by the birth of François, then in 1953 that of Philippe. François, brought up by his grandmother, started studies to get his Certificate of Agricultural Studies and rapidly applied his know-how with a House of Champagne. There he acquired some wine experience enriching his land education and his knowledge, by reading thousands of books. As he became a young wine-grower, he also learnt about vinification and wine trade. Ambitious and promising, François was quickly appointed team leader and broker. A CLOSE FOLLOW-UP Théodore, like his father before him, notes down the instructions of his new concluding practices in a small notebook which he keeps, like an encyclopaedia of experiences and trials on vine and wine; a close follow-up of each idea, each innovation. SUPPLENESS OF WINES Following a vinification mode including alcoholic fermentation of juices in thermo-controlled tanks, and systematic malolactic fermentation for the suppleness of wines, he develops each cuvee with the purpose of producing expressive wines.

    Champagne Perseval-Farge

    , ,
    In 1808, the first rock of our wine house cellar was set down by Jean-Baptiste Perseval. This founding act initiated the definition of our identity, knowhow and wine making expertise. Today, our spirit and philosophy are still affected by this determination, pragmatism and authenticity. Our family identity expresses itself within a strong principle: sustainability and heritage throughout the generations. Taking the necessary time to follow a controlled natural evolution represents a substantial investment but guarantees longevity. To the respect of time value we associate two additional principles: the commitment to the concept of land and the desire to provide our customers with high added value. Human ability and the purity in our taste exert their influence on our champagnes. Our deep attachment to the beautiful wines’ vintages and to the quality is without any compromise! Ancient grapes such as Pinot Gris (or Fromentot), Petit Meslier and Arbanne, match alongside the more traditional Pinot Black, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. We are proud of this heritage that refresh memories and excite curiosity. Furthermore it represents an asset in supporting the elaboration of unique vintages from both ancient and recent grapes variety. Getting the best out of our “Terroir” (land), we produce sparkling quality in accordance with the AOC Champagne traditions: this is the reason why Perseval-Farge winery exists. Elegance, refinement, discretion is the Perseval-Farge winery signature, which perpetuates unique creations from blended selection of ancient and classic grapes ‘varieties, to offer a perfect experience. >> Download datasheet <<

    Domaine Patrice Moreux

    , ,
    The origins of our Domaine go back to 1677 when Edme Corty laid the foundations of a small Domaine in Pouilly. André Moreux bought his first vines in 1702, but on the other side of the Loire, in Sancerre. It is incredible to think that their love of wine and the land would straddle 300 years of history and descend done through 12 generations! These origins explain today our presence in the appellation of Pouilly-Fumé, and more exactly les loges, and in Sancerre at Chavignol. These two regal appellations of Sauvignon Blanc were united in 1955 by the marriage of Jeannine Corty and Raymond Moreaux, direct descendants of Edme and André. As a wedding present their parents gave them a 4.5 hectares parcel of vineyards on a hillside – the ‘Loge Aux Moines’. Patrice Moreux, the only son of Jeannine and Raymond, was given the keys to the house in 1979. He looked to preserve, improve and build on his inheritance. In 1996 his curiosity and passion for wine took him to a new, but not so different place - the ‘Domaine des Vingtinières’. This vineyard in Provence, at the heart of the appellation Côte de Provence, surrounded by the Maures mountains, benefits from a microclimate and an exceptional terroir, made up of red earth and rock generally known as the ‘Permian plateau’. This too is an area destined to grow vines. Today this fine story continues with the sons – Arnaud and Julien Moreux – who have worked respectively at the family Domaine since 2009 and 2011. In each bottle from the vineyards of Patrice Moreux you will above all be tasting the passion, the knowledge and a constant search for the truth, a philosophy where nature is the queen, leaving no place for any chemical interference or external yeasts. All ferments are natural and our wines are made with the greatest of respect for their terroir. Our philosophy is simple: the vine is our church. Our environmental charter is to respect nature and the vines, which are the foundation of our passion. This belief means we limit our intervention in the vines, reinforced by our understanding of the terroir. We observe the roots of our vines in the earth, understand the subtleties of the terroir, measure is capacity to nourish, evaluate the health of the vines, and take care of them. In our Domaines, treatments are kept to the minimum, the rational nutrition of the soil (no chemical fertilizers, ploughing several times a year), allow us to exacerbate the plants physiology and its natural resilience. We voluntarily prune short, and our vines are manually de-budded, whilst observing and respecting the flow of the sap, in order to obtain the optimum durability of our vines and thus a higher concentration of grapes. This trend of limited intervention, leading to lower yields, allows us to obtain healthy grapes, balanced, and capable of producing wines of great quality. Our yields on the Loire valley and in Provence are respectively an average of 55 and 35 hectolitres per hectare, and they are 35 hectolitres per hectare for 65 allowed hectolitres. All stages of vinification are carried out following the lunar cycle, the influence of the moon is crucial in the vinifying of our wines. Finally, indigenous yeasts play a primordial role in our cellars. All of our ferments, without exception, are spontaneous. The indigenous microflora present on our grapes are the cradle of the yeasts. Each parcel is vinified separately, in thermos-regulated Inox tanks, having long and slow natural ferments. Thus the wines conserve their unique character, and under these conditions the terroir can speak freely. We avoid uniformity, the standardization of our wines, and do not subdue our varieties with the use of aromatic or pre-selected yeasts. >> Downloadc products data sheet <<
