The Domaine La Borderie is a brand new reality, created just 6 years ago - in 2013 - by Simon and Marie Normand. As brother and sister, they decided to take over the family estate that covers 11 hectares, located around Bar sur Seine, in the Côte des Bar, where the Seine and the Arce meet.
A simple will pushes the two brothers: to elaborate the parcel cuvées according to meticulous research and to play with the maturity of the grapes, while respecting and remaining faithful to those varieties that are the most traditional of these terroirs: Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A particular interest is also given to the conservation of biodiversity and landscapes: the area, already classified as "High Environmental Value" in 2013, was then certified "Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne" in September 2014, according to what is the religion of Simon and Marie: "we do not exploit the vine, we live with it".
In the vineyard they are constantly looking for limited harvest and a high degree of ripeness of the grapes, which then translates into a high concentration of aromas directly in the cuvées. While in the cellar, the grapes are pressed as soon as they are harvested, always trying to preserve the integrity of the fruit. Each batch of juice is then vinified separately according to its origin, thus allowing the rich palette of aromas and fragrances to expand in order to create assemblages increasingly full of character.
