C17 - Les Grands Crus d'Exception de Champagne

A collective adventure!
It is above all an original story... A story of common passion for exceptional terroirs!
Together, they have given birth to a unique Cuvée, born from the blending of the 17 Grands Crus of the Champagne region to give each year only 1600 magnums of rare wine.


They are 15 women and men, for the most part winegrowers from father to son; all holders of a living, rich and complex heritage... All in love with their land and in love with conviviality, exchanges and especially sharing!
Their will is clear: to highlight the strength of a collective in order to promote their terroir.
Together - and this is the key word - they did what none of their colleagues had managed to do before: to gather in an association, the Grands Crus d'Exception de Champagne, to exchange and progress together, to organize events and to elaborate a unique cuvée named C17 in reference to the 17 Grands Crus villages which compose it.

The radiant buttercup color prepares the senses for the generosity of the nose. The aromas are The aromas are frank and ripe, in a condensation of juicy yellow stone fruits, peach, quince, apricot, mirabelle plum, with greedy nuances of frangipane and nuts such as hazelnut. The palate is tonic and voluminous, dominated by ripe citrus fruits, evolving quickly to reassuringly exotic and spicy notes of vanilla, passion fruit and roasted almonds. The tangy, zesty finish is persistent and heady.
