Champagne Alliance by Colin is the result of the blending of Chardonnay grapes (2/3) and Meunier grapes (1/3) from property vineyards in Vertus - Premier Cru of the Côte des Blancs and Sézanne in the Côteaux du Sézannais cultivated according to the principles of certified Viticulture “Haute Valeur Environnementale - Niveau 3”.
Based on the 2020 harvest with the addition of réserve perpétuelle from 2004, the vinification takes place in steel vats and oak barrels and aging on the yeasts for 18 to 30 months. Dosage 8 g/l (Brut).
The Champagne Alliance combines the terroirs of Sézanne and Vertus in an aromatic and well-balanced blend: the nose reveals soft vegetal and floral notes followed by a more gourmand fruit of quince and candied fruit; the well-balanced palate has a velvety sensation of fullness and generosity. An easy to drink Champagne and ideal for the whole meal, to try with smoked salmon, pan-fried scampi or scallops, fish tartare, apple pie.
Winemakers for over seven generations, the Colin family has been producing Champagne since 1829, when Constant Piéton began cultivating the first vineyards. Since then, the management of the Domaine has continued generation after generation up to Geneviève Prieur, maternal grandmother of Richard and Romain Colin, Vigneron and current owners of the company. The Domaine is located in Vertus with the vineyards owned by approximately eleven hectares distributed in the heart of the Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs, where the agricultural fields mix with the vineyards in a mix of different crops and terroirs. The majority of the vineyard, planted in Chardonnay is located in Vertus, Bergères-les-Vertus and Cuis - Premier Cru; and to Cramant and Oiry - Grand Cru. A small part of the vineyard is planted with Pinot Noir and Meunier and is located in Sézanne. The Colins as farmers and winemakers have a deep knowledge of the land and approach it with care and respect following the principles of sustainable agriculture. Colin Champagnes are the celebration of the great diversity of terroirs: each cru is vinified separately, so that each cuvée can express its unique and exceptional character. For the Colins, each vintage and each parcel is the exploration of the many facets of a precious land and the discovery of its many riches.
