    Dhondt-Grellet Champagne "Dans Un Premier Temps" Extra-Brut NV


    Dhondt-Grellet Champagne "Dans Un Premier Temps" Extra-Brut NV

    In 1986, Eric Dhondt and Edith Grellet decided to stop selling off grapes to negociants and started Dhondt-Grellet. Their focus on farming translated into honest Champagnes from great holdings across the Côte des Blancs.

    Their son, Adrien, now in his 20s, has taken over the winemaking and is quickly bringing his family's wines to another level. He has slowly increased the range of Champagnes produced by isolating their holdings across the villages of Cramant and Cuis and bottling pure expressions of Chardonnay. We couldn’t be more excited about the direction of this young domaine.

    This the first cuvée of Adrien's range and the largest; he intends it to be an expression of all 6 hectares of his holdings spread across Sezanne, Cuis, and Avenay val d'Or. Vines are an average of 45 years old.

    The blend is 50% Chardonnay (Sezanne) - 1/2 fermented in barrel, the rest in tank and 30% Pinot Noir tank-fermented (Avenay Val d'Or in Vallée de la Marne), and 20% tank-fermented Pinot Meunier (from old vines in Cuis). The base vintage is 70% of the blend with the remainder a perpetual reserve started in 1986. In a few years all of it's vins clairs will be barrel fermented. Dosage is between 2g/l to 2.5g/l.
