Terroir

Bouzy is a village of "Grande Montagne de Reims", especially of the "Côte des Noirs" because stronghold of Pinot Noir with a subsoil of full chalk and a clayey-limestone soil.
Brasles is a highly sloping hill overlooking the Marne river, with harder limestone subsoils and clay-loam soils.
On these slopes, vine grows on soils composed by fragments of millstones, pebbles and sand mixed with clays of decalcification of millstones, resulting of erosion.
It is well suited to the Champagne wine. Light colored, it provides during the day a beneficial reflection of warmth and light to the vine. Rather thin, it is conducive to quality.
A few hundred millions years ago deposed by the seas of the end of the Mesozoic era, the chalk of Cretaceous can go down to 200 meters deep. It absorbs heat and returns it. It is the same with water to regulate the absorption by the vines which plunge the roots up to 3-4 meters deep.
