Overview

From their vintage labels to their retro winemaking practices, brothers Jean-François and Arnaud Paillard-Chauvet create champagnes in the old-school style that true connoisseurs love. For them, harmony is not just important, it is elemental. As such, they are great proponents of blending Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and they take an unabashedly classical approach in the vineyards and in the cellars. Farming their family’s 10 hectares sustainably in five of the Montagne de Reim’s 17 grand crus—Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy, Verzenay and Bisseuil—lends a complex synergy to the final wines where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Long fermentations and extended élevages on the lees help develop complexity and fine aromatics, while also radically reducing the need for sulfur and eschewing the need for malolactic fermentations. In the end, their harmony in both their partnership and practice yields elegant, earthy and aromatic champagnes with a fine, satiny mousse that dances across the palate. That they are also capable of long cellar aging is a fitting legacy for a family who has endured since 1848.

Winery Tasting Notes

NV Cachet Vert Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut

Chauvet’s NV Blanc de Blancs is the epitome of the complexity that real champagne lovers look for. Creamy notes of pears and melons jump out of the glass, complemented by the signature chalky mineral notes of its terroir and aromas of freshly baked brioche. Deep, full and well-balanced, each sip is infused with a fresh core of acidity and bright minerals that lingers long on the palate.

NV Carte Blanche Grand Cru Brut

Brilliant pale gold color with a fine, persistent bead. The palate is soft, rich and satiny with a nose redolent of freshly baked shortbread, lemon zest and minerals. The complexity of the palate lingers into a long, satisfying finish.
