The nose is fresh, crisp, and subtle with elegant notes of white fruits and some mineral hints. The palate is fresh with a good mouthfeel and aromas of white fruits such as pear and citrus and some floral notes. Some minerality brings complexity and freshness to this champagne.
Terroir Natal is a light and festive cuvee. It will ideally match cocktails and aperitifs. Try it also with turbot, crayfish and lobster.
The grapes come exclusively from the Grand Cru vineyards belonging to Sanger, from areas of Cramant, Oger and Avize. Manual harvest.
This cuvee is produced with grapes from 2010 harvest, topped up with 20% of 2008 and 2009 reserve wines. 30% of the wines have not undergone any malolactic fermentation (to preserve its natural freshness). Classical Champenoise vinification technique, aged 6 months on lees.
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.
