QUALITY GRAPES

Recognized long ago as the source of quality grapes, the large champagne houses have been quietly purchasing grapes from this region. The Aube, whose formation is over 145 million years old and dates back to the Jurassic era, represents 25% of the entire champagne region.

DISTINCTIVE IN SOIL

Its soil, a mixture of clay, limestone and fossilized seashell, replicates that of neighboring Chablis. Yet, despite the geological resemblance to Chablis, which makes the most distinctive Chardonnay wines in the world, the Aube is known for its superior Pinot Noir.

FRENCH AUBE

This large and increasingly important area of Champagne has been discovered by bubbly lovers and now lays claim to an outsize portion of fascination among Champagne lovers.

In Aube, there is no bragging about the art of blending and no luxury branding, instead, they stake their reputation on the land.

QUALITY GRAPES

The Cheurlin vineyards produce three main grape varietals - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc - to produce four distinctly elegant, vibrant and enjoyable champagnes.

CHARDONNAY
Slower to develop than other grapes, Chardonnay produces sparkling wines that are built to improve with age. Yields subtly fragrant wines with characteristic  notes of flowers and citrus Known for its freshness and delicacy.

PINOT NOIR
The indomitable Pinot Noir grape provides strength and complexity. Produces champagnes with distinctive  aromas and fruited notes Particularly suited for the chalky limestone soil of the Cheurlin vineyards.

PINOT BLANC
The rarity of this grape, which represents less than .5% of the grape varietals grown in the Champagne region, helps make Cheurlin champagnes unique. Similar to Chardonnay, but lighter and fruitier. Produces a medium- to full-bodied champagne with good acidity.
