Overview of the Wine
Along with the wonderful range of wines Clotilde Davenne bottles from her estate holdings. In her own vines, Clotilde is working as naturally as possible, without the use of chemicals, and almost all of her production is harvested by hand. In the cellar all the wines undergo malolactic fermentation, a conscious decision by Clotilde, as she feels it brings greater complexity to the wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The Clotilde Grand Cru Champagne is made by Jean Michel Turgy! Sourced from Le Mesnil Sur Oger, this Blanc de Blanc is a 100% Chardonnay bottling produced from a few small parcels in this remarkable appellation. This amazing bubbly expresses all its generosity and grand delicacy with its very harmonious flowery nose, and in the mouth expresses hints of apple and honey with a nice golden color and a very seductive froth.
Clotilde is an homage to the first queen of France, is a Blanc de Blanc Cuvee from the Grand Cru vineyards of Michel Turgy in Les Mesnil – Sur – Oger. . The steeple on the label (in the L) is a replica of the church where her relics are held at the Eglise Saint-Leu-Saint Gilles de Paris. This extremely limited release is only available in California and France.

The NV Champagne Grand Cru Blanc De Blancs Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut comes from one of the great vineyards of Champagne and offers ripe, apple/orchard fruits as well as lots of white flowers, a touch of brioche and ample minerality. It’s very clean, pretty, and elegant, with building richness and a clean finish. It’s a beautiful wine.
