How to appreciate

This Champagne is a gastronomic Champagne rather than an aperitif Champagne.

It is also a "philosophical Champagne" to be tasted in a very quiet space with a positive mind. It brings to the consumers a sort of peace. To me the idea is to taste, feeling the emotion brought by the wine.

The better temperature is 13 to 14 °C. It is important to avoid ice bucket. It is too violent. The Champagne needs several minutes (15 minutes even more) to open. And you have to care not shock the glass after the filling.

It is also interesting to taste standing in the different orientation (North, South, East and West) specially in the west direction (Champagne direction).

If you have the possibility to taste the Champagne during a fruit or flower day, it is better.

About this cuvée

Grapes are from the fellows of Hervé Jestin,
Vincent Laval(Cumières, PN&PM, Biologic) and David Leclappart(Trépail, CH, Biodynamie). The wine was vinified in the cellar of Marguet. This is the first ever certified organic prestige Champagne blended from across the region. Hervé Jestin had already created prototype of this cuvée called "Authentis Series" at Duval-Leroy while he had been a wine-maker of Duval-Leroy. He worked for Duval-Leroy for 23 years since 1982. And then, in 2005, he became independent as a consultant to share knowledge and experience with producers (such as Vouette et Sorbee, Marguet, Fleury etc) who has strong intention for improvement.

Big maisons are also being influenced by Hervé Jestin today. Louis Roederers hired Hervé Jestin(until 3 years ago), Moet et Chandon, Taittinger, Laurent Perrier and some other big houses started to study about biodynamie and Feng-Shui based on scientific recognition.

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.
