A mineral triangle: a single grape varietal, a single year, and a single plot. This vintage is an exceptional and original expression of a mature Chardonnay.
|Inventory||Very Low Stock (24)|
Hints of candied citrus on the nose. A slight briny flavour fully expresses Chardonnay grown on chalky soils. Complex and very elegant on the palate with a certain roundness on the finish. Great Champagne.
Triangle Mineral is a wine to enjoy with your connoisseur friends. Start with a stylish aperitif, then it will be the perfect match for fine fish.
The grapes come exclusively from the Grand Cru Avize vineyards belonging to Sanger. Manual harvest.
Grapes are separated per plot at the harvest, to be vinified separately, ageing for 6 months on lees in stainless steel vats. 30% of the wines have not undergone any malolactic fermentation (to preserve its natural freshness). Classical Champenoise vinification technique. Minimum ageing of 50 months in bottles.
To rebuild the regional heritage after the devastation brought to Champagne by the phylloxera, there seemed to be only one solution: training new generations to winegrowing. On November 3rd 1927, thanks to a donation, the gates of Avize wine school opened for the first time to 13 students for a training in wine-growing and wine-making. In 1952, 16 former students got together, and set up the “former students cooperative”. For them, the cooperative and the school should be one single entity. They decided to bring every year to the school some of their still wines and their enthusiasm to make wine with the students in the school. The diversity of the geographical origins of the grapes increased along the years. Meanwhile, from the end of the 50s, the school has bought or rent vineyards in the neighborhood of the school, to reach its current surface of about 10 Ha.
Champagne Sanger is unique as the students of Avize Viti Campus produce Champagne Sanger with their cellar master.
