Description

Fabrice and Valerie Closset-Gaziaux both have educational backgrounds in agronomy and earth sciences. After having spent extensive time working to develop sustainable farming practices in Africa and then helping growers in the Loire develop organic and naturally balanced vineyards for 8 years, they decided (in 2008) to procure vineyards in South-Revermont, in the “premier plateau” of Jura. Fabrice and Valerie acquired 5 hectares of land on which they grow Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Savagnin and employed biodynamic farming practices. They emphasize patience and observance as two necessary principles for understanding their locale,  and learning from their sites to better accommodate a balance in the vineyard.

Plenty of ripe fruit keeps this this zero dosage Crémant from being overly austere. Champ Divin’s farmer fizz gets all of the first pass (early picked) fruit, and then only free run juice.  70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir

Biodynamically grown on clay-limestone of shallow depth over limestone /silica bedrock.  Manual harvest and gentle pressing with light sulfuring, then fermentation at temperatures below 20 centigrade. Malolactic fermentation. 9 months aging before disgorgement. Zero dosage.
