Yann Alexandre

"Roche Mere" Brut NV

750ml
$67

Roche Mère begins as the same cuvée as Yann Alexandre's classic Brut Noir. The added benefit of this cuvée is an additional year en tirage and completely zero added dosage. The blend is composed of the same 50% Pinot Meunier, 35% Chardonnay and 15% pinot noir collected from 20 different organically farmed plots spread across the communes of Courmas, Bouilly, Merfy, Chenay and Saint-Lumier-en-Champagne. The result is a very dry, classic Champagne with classic notes of apple, citrus, and toasted brioche. The mousse is creamy and soft, making this wine a great match for food of just about any variety!

Yann Alexandre

Yann Alexandre is the eighth generation of his family to grow vines in the Petite Montagne de Reims, the third to make Champagne there. He and his wife, Séverine, share a passion for horticulture that directly informs their viticulture. “We grow the vineyard like a garden,” Yann explains. This is a high bar for two farmers working 6.3 hectares spread over 28 plots in nine villages. But is also essential to their philosophy: “I always try to put forward the characteristics of each plot of land and to reach perfect grape maturity and health.” Vitality is achieved through intensive handwork and regenerative practices to which the Alexandres have been dedicated since 1999.
