One of the few Champange producers working biodynamically in his vineyards. He shifted to this agricultural method when he realized how many of the chemicals used on the vines ended up in the finished wines. Les Murgiers is a Blanc de Noir, a white from red grapes, 70% Pinot Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir. It is completely dry as it is made without a dosage.
From the mouth of the importer (David Bowler):
"Only "la cuvée" (the first juice from the first pressing) is used to make this champagne. Vinified in old small oak barrels, large casks and half hogsheads. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. "Batonnage" (beating in) of fine lees every 10 to 12 days. Bottled on “fruit days” of the lunar calendar. Unfined."
