The Champagne Aquilon by Grethen is a Blanc de Blancs made from 100% Chardonnay harvested from estate-owned vineyards of an average age of 25 years, more precisely from the Lieu-dit "Au dessus du village" in Brouillet, in the heart of the Vallée de l'Ardre. Harvested in 2018, this Blanc de Blancs vinifies for 24 months in fût de chêne and rests for a further 24 months on its lees. The minimum sulphite intake equals 30 mg/l, it undergoes no clarification nor filtration processes. No final dosage for this Brut Nature (0 g/l).
Champagne Grethen was born in 1995 with Laurent and Annick Grethen, winemakers from Brouillet in the heart of the Vallée de l'Ardre, who, after having dedicated themselves to working in a cooperative for more than twenty years and having acquired new land, have made it possible the development of family brand. Since 2016, his son Antoine has assumed a fundamental role within the company, internalizing the winemaking process and converting all the processes of vineyard work to organic and biodynamic methods. In 2020, the 3 hectares of vineyards were certified in Organic Agriculture and Demeter. The vines are grown for 80% Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir, 5% Chardonnay and 5% Petit Meslier on clayey-limestone soils. The vinification process is done in barriques with long maturation and spontaneous fermentation to reveal all the character of Meunier grape, the interventions in the cellar are minimal, as well as the contribution of sulphites: in 2020 the first cuvées were produced without added sulphites, and Antoine's goal is to continue on this path.
