The roots of Champagne Dom Caudron are in Passy-Grigny, a village in the Marne Valley where a famous priest, Aimé Caudron, had a visionary and promising idea… The generous epicurean was an iconic vine growing figure in this Marne Valley’s village. He loved eating in the village vine growers’ homes and brightened up banquets with his passion. Dom Caudron knew that the wine they served at mealtimes to enjoy every day had a bright future…
Cornalyne brings out the best in Meunier by vinifying 50% in oak barrels. To bring a subtle woody nuance to the fruitiness of this fragile grape variety, the 300-litre barrels are toasted using Aquaflex to saturate the oak with water. Regular stirring of the lees is carried out during the ageing process to ensure that the wood expresses itself well on the nose and on the palate. The Meunier grape variety is fresh, fine and complex… An original and delicious Blanc de Noirs for the discerning palate!Clay-limestone and clay-sand soils. Integrated viticulture, harvested by hand. 8000 kg Coquard press. Cold settling for 12 hours. Partial malolactic fermentation. Partial vinification in 300-litre oak barrels with Aquaflex toasting, aged on lees for 6 to 8 months.
Cornalyne invites you to dedicate some real tasting moments to fully appreciate it. Enjoy it alongside poularde with morel mushrooms or venison with pepper sauce. When it comes to cheese, pair it with an old Parmesan or a farmhouse Morbier cheese….
