Apparently Champagne will be most prominent region which dramatically improve its quality for the next ten years. Revolution has already started since mid 00's and many Champagnes which are under the influence of Hervé Jestin fascinate serious wine connoisseurs today.

Biodynamie and Hervé Jestin

All of
Hervé Jestin's theory and practice are based on Biodynamie. Generally "Biodynamie" is considered as the matter in the vineyards and it is separated from wine-making in the cellar. In fact, most of Biodynamique producers(or Vin Nature producers) are trying to minimize the operation in the cellar. They are thinking that less intervention is better. However Hervé Jestin says his Biodynamique approach keeps on running in the cellar. He widely and deeply applies concept of Biodynamie to operation in the cellar. As a result, he has successfully maintained(rather enhanced) "energy and vibration" of biodynamic grapes to the wine, and transferred them into the bottle without any loss. Please remember the sense of Feng-Shui. Biodynamie and Feng-Shui has lots of similarities and it is telling same thing by different language. Practically Hervé Jestin's method includes these approaches. It is easy to understand for Hong Kong people.

Herve Jestin partnered with Benoit Marguet to create this wine, the first ever certified organic prestige Champagne blended from across the region. They released same wine with two different labels. One is Champagne Jestin, the other one is Sapience/Marguet. Grapes are from the fellows of Hervé Jestin, Vincent Laval(Cumières, PN&PM, Biologic) and David Leclappart(Trépail, CH, Biodynamie). The wines were vinified in the cellar of Marguet.
