Story

Olivier Langlais comes from a long line of Champagne growers, farming six hectares in the Montagne des Reims, with vines coming from both his mother and father’s side. When he took over, he immediately started the conversion to organics. Implementing biodynamic practices, the vineyards will be certified organic in 2018. Clearly, the life under vine has been renewed, as his fields are full of wild herbs and flora. Each step of the winemaking process is timed to the lunar calendar. There is no oak or malolactic fermentation here, intentionally letting the minerality shine.
