Description

Champagne Hubert Soreau
Le Clos L'Abbé V12

Champagne Le Clos l'Abbé by Hubert Soreau is the result of 100% Chardonnay coming from vines of the renowned Clos l'Abbé just outside Epernay in the Vallée de la Marne.
It can be defined as a real "garage" wine (wine garage) in the noblest sense of the expression, which indicates wines produced in batches of such small size that they can be stored in a little space such as a garage. The term has a French derivation and was born in the 90s in reference to wines from some micro-farms in the Bordeaux area that worked on tiny plots of land with exceptional results.

Champagne Le Clos l'Abbé is a Blanc de Blancs grown in three separate lots of Clos l'Abbé for an area of only 21 ares (0.21 hectares). Vintage 2012, this Champagne vinifies and ages in wood barrels from Hautvillers forest, not in a garage, but in the cellar of his wife Nathalie, who also produces her Champagnes under the name of Champagne J.Vignier. Tirage sur liège, long aging before dègorgement à la volée and no dosage (Brut Nature) for this Champagne produced in very limited quantities for only 1,038 bottles.

Champagne Le Clos l'Abbé reveals itself with a dense and rich bouquet: fruity notes of white peach, pear and citrus, toasted notes, hazelnut, and buttery notes of brioche. In a few minutes the bouquet is enriched with white pepper and dried fruit. The mouth opens with a straight and lively minerality that gives way to a softness and generosity that make it an ideal Champagne to accompany a whole meal.

Champagne Hubert Soreau

Hubert Soreau, born in the town of Maubeuge, in the far north of France on the border with Belgium, moved to Champagne with his family in the 1990s, near the famous parcel "Le Clos l'Abbé" just outside Epernay. Originally planted in the 9th century, this parcel has a long history also recalled in the writings by the Abbot Saint Martin d’Epernay in the 17th century and known for the production of Champagne. In 1993, Hubert's parents bought a small batch and in 2003 Hubert bought more. Today Hubert Soreau cultivates his grapes in three separate lots of “Le Clos l'Abbé”, for a total area of only 21 ares (0.21 hectares). After a first experience at a Maison de négoce, he decides to produce his first Champagne of unique provenance from “Le Clos l'Abbé”, called Champagne Le Clos l'Abbé. It is a “single vintage, single parcel, single barrel” approach, currently already used by some winemakers in the region, accompanied by a perspective free from traditions and conventions. The Clos's 100% Chardonnay vines are like a garden in bloom, as evidenced by the tulips and daffodils that bloom between the rows in spring; they are cut in the "chablisienne" style and no herbicides and pesticides are used. The grapes are then vinified and aged in wood barrels from the nearby Hautvillers forest, tirage sur liège and long aging before dègorgement à la volée.
