Tassin "Successeurs" Brut Champagne Brut MV
In the Aube, the southern-most region of Champagne, you'll find the house of Tassin. For an astonishing 227 years the family has been growing and producing wine in the hamlet of Loches-sur-Ource. Emerging in Champagne during the French Revolution, enduring two world wars and countless economic turmoil, the family has persevered throughout.
Today, Thibault Tassin is the latest of many to steward this estate. He has taken the house to new heights, working hands-on everywhere: from the hand harvested fruit in the vineyards to riddling the Champagne in the cellar by hand the old fashioned way, it's a true labor of love. Prior to the modern day, Tassin sold their fruit to the "big" houses with eye popping price tags; indeed the Aube region has for centuries served as the bread basket for those giant labels. More and more, however, these small grower-producers have chosen to craft their own bottlings reflective of their rugged individuality and hyperlocal terroir.
The multi-vintage (MV) Brut bottling is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir from marly soils with 20% Chardonnay from their limestone-chalky terroir (a true rarity in the Aube) fermented naturally in stainless steel and bottled with a minimal dosage for a clean, richer style, complemented by very 'Burgundian" floral notes of red fruits and flowers, croissant dough, orange oil, and a precise mineral finish.
We work tirelessly to comb the wine world for unique offerings with astounding back stories; Tassin is precisely this, and an immense value to enjoy any night of the week!
