Tasting notes for the Rossignol Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra-Brut 2018 - Maison Vauversin

  • EYE: In the glass, this Champagne Rossignol Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra-Brut 2018 adorns itself with a bright yellow robe, showcasing intense golden reflections. Fine bubbles rise in cascades, forming a persistent string that testifies to its delicate effervescence.
  • NOSE: The olfactory bouquet opens with delicate floral notes, where acacia flower blends with fresh citrus scents. Gradually, aromas of white-fleshed fruits, such as juicy pear, settle in, bringing a fruity and indulgent dimension to the ensemble. Subtle toasted and grilled notes, with a beautiful minerality, complete this complex olfactory picture.
  • MOUTH: On the palate, the attack is crisp, marked by refreshing acidity and a beautiful texture. The minerality becomes more prominent, offering an elegant structure to this Champagne. Flavors of lemon, ripe white peach, and green apple fully express themselves, providing well-balanced acidity. The lengthy finish reveals toasty and buttery nuances, indicative of careful aging.

 

In short: This Rossignol Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra-Brut 2018 from the Maison Vauversin is 100% Chardonnay and worthy of the best wines. This bottle, made by a house that deeply cares for the environment, contains a selection of different parcels of vineyard. Its aging potential can extend up to 8 years to allow its characteristics to fully unfold. Pair this prestigious champagne with scallop carpaccio, fennel salad with citrus and nuts, or zucchini flower fritters.

A Champagne treasure, since 1640

 

The Maison Vauversin, currently managed by Laurent Vauversin and his father Bruno, has existed since the 17th century. In 1640, Nicolas de Vauversin was the first to plant grapevines in the little village of Oger (near the town of Épernay), on the Côte des Blancs. Fifteen generations came after him. In 1930, Bruno's grandfather Fernand Vauversin, became a pioneer: he stopped selling his grapes to local wine merchants and decided to commercialize his own Champagne. In his endeavour, he was helped by his former military unit, the friends who promoted his bottles far and wide.

Laurent loves his vineyard above all, not as a production site but as a complete ecosystem he needs to protect, with its rhythm, its biodiversity, its soul… The entire estate switched to organic winemaking in 2011. At the time, it was a very difficult financial decision for the young independent winegrower, but he was adamant in his decision and never regretted it. In the words of Laurent himself: a grand cru Champagne can only be born from the finest grapes. He wants his customers to taste the real Oger terroir when they open one of his bottles.
