Wine:

The House's flagship, the 2013 Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Fleur de Passion is a racy champagne cut out for long aging. The wine possesses the phenomenal drive of the vintage while managing to retain the wine's panache and density of dry extracts. Produced from plots of old vines on hillsides in Cramant, aged 60 years or more, this champagne finds a masterly élan, between finesse and consistency. Serve it in large glasses as an aperitif with an 18-month-old comté or with cooked fish or poultry.

Vinification:

Fleur de Passion is the flagship of Diebolt-Vallois. Produced and aged in barrel, this vintage wine is made only in the best years.
Terroir : The grapes come from 7 to 8 plots of old hillside vines located in Cramant (a village classified as 100% Grand Cru), notably in the lieu-dit Les Buzons. Many of the vines are 60 years old or more. Yields are low. The soils are made up of a fine layer of earth on a chalk bedrock, and the general exposure is east-south-east.
Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation takes place in barrels. No malolactic fermentation, no filtration, no fining: everything that can tire the wine is avoided to aging all the expression of the terroir. Aging a wine in Burgundy barrels. This is champagne made the old-fashioned way.
Dosage: 3 to 5 gr/liter.

Based in the Côte des Blancs, mainly in Cramant and Cuis, the Diebolt-Vallois Champagne house crafts an inspired range, full of elegance and energy, logically dominated by the Chardonnay grape.

A secret address known only to seasoned connoisseurs, who find here models of graceful, firm champagnes with excellent aging potential, such as the Fleur de Passion wine, vinified in barrels.

A benchmark for silky, refined cuvées of great serenity, which will delight lovers of champagnes geared to aging and aromatic blossoming.
