Champagnes of Côte de Sézanne
Browse by Sub-Region
The climate of Cote de Sézannes is wet, and rich in clay. These effects give a wide, full and rich character to the Chardonnay that comes from here. The grapes ripen earlier, with rounded acidity and fuller flavours, which are a lot fruitier than its northern sub-region neighbours. After Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier is the next most planted with a 20% share, and is often the raw material of rosés.
