Bouzy, Champagne

The Vesselle family have been making champagne for over 300 years. Today Delphine Vesselle and her husband David continue the tradition, making grower champagne in the village of Bouzy, famous for the quality of its Pinot Noir. The estate comprises 11 hectares, 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, with a total production of under 7,000 cases. All their cuvees combine the energy of small production wines with a fine bead worthy of the luxury houses. Perhaps their most unusual wine is the Oeil de Perdrix, or Eye of the Partridge, their revival of a defunct style: a copper-hued Pinot Noir champagne.
