✓ Tasted and approved | ✓ Secure paiement
This wine is grown on a single vineyard, La Grosse Pierre (Ludes) with very fine layer of clay directly on chalk. This vintage Champagne is vinified and aged in 600L barrels and doesn?t go through malolactic fermentation. All this is done to obtain the best expression of terroir from a single grape variety.
Georges Hure created the domaine in 1960. The name Hure Freres came about in 1971 when Georges passed on management of the domaine to his three sons?Jean Marie, Marc and Raoul. Since 2008, the new generation represented by Fran?ois and Pierre has been at the head of the estate. Previous experiences in Burgundy and around the world helped them to appreciate the traditional farming and respect for terroir of the old world and the efficient modern techniques of the new one. Both serve them to create the terroir-driven and focused cuvees that mark the Hure Freres style today.
40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier
