Voted top 100 wineries of the year in 2008 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, this is terrifically racy Champagne with a chalky character. It’s brisk and pure but creamy, with incisive apple and citrus flavors and great finesse. The floral finish has great grip and is very long. 12.5% abv
Diebolt-Vallois Champagnes come from the union of two great families of the region:
The Diebolt family has lived in Cramant since the end of the 19th century, and the Vallois family has been cultivating vines in Cuis since the 15th Century. Jacques Diebolt and Nadia Vallois are helped by their two children, Arnaud and Isabelle, who are taking an ever increasingly active part in the running of the estate.
The Diebolt-Vallois champagne vineyards cover 26 acres of which the great majority are in Cramant and Cuis, two villages which are classed as Grand Cru and Premier Cru respectively. Other plots are at Chouilly (another Grand Cru village) and on the hillsides at Epernay (vineyards called Les Toulettes and Les Hautes Justices). All of these are planted entirely in Chardonnay, the grape used to make blanc de blancs Champagne.
