Champagne Colin is at Vinexpo to launch the 2006 vintage of Les Prôles et Chétivins Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Extra Brut Millésime 2006 cuvée.
This rare Champagne comes from this small family house’s oldest vineyards, known as Les Chétivins, and is only made in exceptional years of quality using grapes from Vertus, one of the highest rated Premier Cru villages of Champagne. Les Prôles is the name of the vineyard on the south-eastern slope of Vertus that was planted in the 1960’s by the family of brothers, Richard and Romain Colin, who now run the property.
Champagne Colin specialises in Chardonnay-dominated Champagnes with two thirds of its 12 hectares of vineyards in Grand Cru and Premier Cru rated villages in the Côte des Blancs. The Colin family has been producing quality Champagnes for generations and can trace its roots in the region back to 1829. In 1997 Richard and Romain left the local co-operative system to become independent grower-producers.
This 2006 vintage is described as a must for Chardonnay lovers and has been bottled to enjoy now, but also for ageing. Ideal both as an aperitif or to be served with fresh seafood such as oysters and scallops.
