Terroir. Vineyards around the villages of Hautvillers, Dizy and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Soil. Clay and limestone on belemnita quadrata chalk. This chalk variety stores and radiates solar heat, maximizes drainage of excess water and retains humidity in summer. It stores the principal minerals that give the grapes their high ester content. Vines. Average age: 25 years. 8,300 to 10,000 vines by hectare, pruned according to “Chablis” and “Cordon de Royat” methods. Harvest. Grapes harvested by hand in September, transported in vented crates. Hydraulic presses of 4,000 kg. Vinification. By parcel. Static settling 15 to 20 hours. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, tartaric stabilization in small-volume, temperature-controlled tanks during 4 to 7 months after harvest. Aged on lees 2.5 to 3.5 years. Tasting Notes. Golden yellow hue, fine mousse. Fresh nose of dried fruit (apricot) with a hint of citrus. Smooth palate (Meunier); fresh, balanced and fruity (fresh apricot, white peach, citrus); aromatic finish.

Gaston Chiquet

Product by: Gaston Chiquet

Later, along with his son Claude, Gaston buys land in the municipalities of Aÿ and Hautvillers, thus extending the estate vineyards, which represent today 23 hectares, with an average age of 27 years. As "récoltant-manipulant" Gaston Chiquet uses only estate-grown grapes, dealing directly with the entire process, from the elaboration of the wine harvest to commercialization of the bottles.
