Aged for many months in the depths of the ocean Cuvée Abyss is a champagne with a distinct air of the sea. Equally, the first taste confirms the perfect quality of it’s origins and reflects the chalky, mineral and sandy character of our terroirs.

Decanter "Bottle-aged for 18 months at a depth of 60 metres under sea, this cuvée is composed of one-third Pinot Noir from Villers-Allerand, one-third Chardonnay from Montgueux and one-third Pinot Meunier from Chamery. Fresh, floral nose with a sea tang to it, but also a bit of reduction just after opening. The palate is elegant but incredibly taut, while the taste has an alluring oxidative element interacting with its white fruit. This is a Champagne that will shine at the dinner table."

34% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier and 33% Chardonnay

Region

Festive Champagne & Sparkling

The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards. 

The chalky soil (good for both water retention and also drainage) is perfect for the grapes needed for Champagne; Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Unlike the southern regions of France, Champagne has a mild, steady climate with low levels of sunshine with the ideal amount of rain. Wines from this region command high prices, often considerably more than other sparkling wines.
