Varietal: Pinot Noir
Region: Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Champagne, France
The plot of land where this Pinot Noir grows began as a park-like space filled with flowers and fruit trees for the family to enjoy. In 1964 they tried their hand at planting Pinot Noir, realizing the plots outstanding terroir. After many years of tending the vines, the first vintage of "St. Hilaire," named for the patron saint of the church in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, was born in 1995. This cuveé Blanc de Noirs is ample on the palate with citrus and candied pear notes complimented by a base of panettone.
