The very intense and slightly steely flavours of the Chardonnay blended with discrete notes of Pinot Noir give the wine an exquisite lightness and fruitiness. This Champagne presents a fruity and smooth nose of Pinot Meunier with typical notes of green apples and pears. The Pinot Noir gives then the structure and the roundness of the wine to finish by exquisite lightness and freshness of the Chardonnay.
Champagne CHAPUY is a Family Estate of 8 ha of vineyards . The majority of them are planted in the "Côte des Blancs" with Chardonnay grape variety, which allows to produce a fine and light Blanc de Blancs Champagne, very typical of this region. Among them, 3 ha belong to the famous "Grand Cru" village of Oger. Other family plots, located in the "Coteaux Sud d'Epernay" and planted with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties (3ha), are used to produce the blended Champagnes, more fruity and mellow.
CHAPUY Family is inextricably linked with Oger's history because one of its ancestors was mayor of the village just after the French Revolution.
Wine - growing is stuck in the family tradition since more than a century, but Serge CHAPUY was the actual brand creator and started to commercialize Champagne in 1952.
The Family Estate's Motto : A Premium quality Champagne at an "owner" price .
