Champagne In Crisis Talks - Grapes Might Be Destroyed Due To Poor Sales

Champagne In Crisis Talks - Grapes Might Be Destroyed Due To Poor Sales

Champagne producers have been hit hard by the pandemic–fewer people are able to celebrate occasions and come together in groups where champagne is traditionally drunk. A crisis meeting has been called for August 18th, where decisions will have to be made about whether to destroy excess grapes or sell them to make hand sanitizer–both of which would have been unthinkable one year ago.


Het zou zomaar kunnen dat dit nog nooit eerder is vertoond.

Champagne Growers Help Cultivate The Grape Varieties Of The Future

2020 delivered Champagne its earliest harvest start date on record. This is a monumental fact, particularly because this region has one of the most thoughtful approaches to harvest in France.

4 Developments From Champagne, Heading Into What’s Typically Their Most Lucrative Season

4 Developments From Champagne, Heading Into What’s Typically Their Most Lucrative Season

Maybe it’s the itch to put 2020 behind them.

Maybe it’s the desire to find something — anything — to celebrate, or to remind them of joyful, happy things.

Or maybe it’s the roller coaster ride of good news / bad news from Champagne so far this year that’s compelling consumer attention, whether that’s the earliest harvest on record or the drop in COVID-era sales or the particularly favorable conditions for the vintage.

Crémant comes into its own

Crémant comes into its own

There is no French wine category more ambitious and complex than crémant. It is a sparkling wine style which encompasses more diversity than any other European designation: your glass may contain a 100% Riesling sparkling wine, a 50/50 blend of Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc, a 100% Chenin Blanc version or a Champagne style.

Italian Sparkling Wine Producer Focuses On Pinot Noir And Social Equality

Italian Sparkling Wine Producer Focuses On Pinot Noir And Social Equality

Oltrepò Pavese is one of the most traditional wine zones in Italy which just happens to be located only a little over an hour outside of Milan - one of the most modern Italian cities, and this surprisingly unknown area in the northern Italian region of Lombardy has seemingly had viticulture existing there for at least 3,000 years. Although there are many native Italian grapes varieties in this area, it has become the Pinot Noir capital of Italy as it has devoted almost 10,000 acres to this noble variety which has existed there at least since the mid 1800s. In 1982, an important Italian family by the name of Moratti, led by patriarch Gian Marco Moratti who owned the largest oil refinery in Italy, bought the Castello di Cigognola estate in Oltrepò Pavese, built around the 11th century, to bring it back to its glory and carve out a place for Oltrepò Pavese as an Italian quality wine region. Although it is already a fascinating idea considering the aforementioned aspects of this project, what makes this enterprise special is that it is aiming to be the greatest Italian sparkling wine by building a foundation on social equality.

Le Clos Saint-Hilaire: a single hectare at the forefront of winegrowing

Le Clos Saint-Hilaire: a single hectare at the forefront of winegrowing

Behind a patchwork of buildings in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, a so-called ‘commune déléguée’ in the Vallée de la Marne, a single hectare of south-southeast facing Pinot Noir vines produce arguably one of the world’s most vinous and critically-acclaimed Champagnes. Le Clos Saint-Hilaire, its name lent from the local church of Église Saint-Hilaire, belongs to ‘super grower‘ Billecart-Salmon. Though the commune itself is classified premier cru, albeit amongst only two villages to have scored 99% in the Échelle des Crus classification framework, seventh-generation CEO, Mathieu Roland-Bilecart has his own views on the cru framework. Views which are certainly emboldened by this tiny parcel off the Boulevard du N. Having produced only five vintages since it’s first as a standalone bottling in 1995, you’d be forgiven for underestimating the extent to which this outwardly humble site continues to shape the houses persistent and determined evolution. Pointing toward the vineyards scattering of pumpkins and wool-laden residents, Mathieu describes the site as his research and development facility. Shortly after this years harvest, Mathieu and I wondered the site discussing in more detail its extended importance.
