Region: Verzy, Champagne
Varietals: 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay
Pairing Ideas: A leisurely weekend morning brunch with smoked salmon, crème fraîche, and capers on toast. The requisite side of our hero the potato chip is excellent for snacking & sipping. A grilled ribeye is always wine for protein and Champagne lovers at dinner. Never tried that pairing? Now is the time.
About: These are some of the most exciting wines we’ve tasted in a very long time. Pure expressions of Verzy Grand Cru, one of the most interesting and diverse terroirs in the Montagne de Reims. Sébastien Mouzon is producing certified organic wines and practices biodynamic viticulture. “A transmission from generation to generation.
'We are vignerons for 9 generations transmitting a passion for wine, but also know-how. In Verzenay, the mineral is inside the fruit. In Verzy, the fruit is inside the minerality.” - Mouzon-Leroux
