Description
 
In Congy, resides Ulysse Collin, a new disciple of Jacques Selosse, a biodynamic producer who creates exciting and desirable blanc de blancs which is produced in oak barrels. Collin gives credit to Anselme Selosse for inspiring him to become a Champenois vigneron. He did a stage with Selosse in 2001, which he describes as “one of those encounters that changes your life,” The geological mix of chalk and silex from his site is quite unique in Champagne which really adds an unique character to the wines produced by this burgundy influenced oak-enthusiast. His vinification becomes more and more organic. Time the wine spends in oak casks has been extended every year and this extremely talented winemaker has enormous potential to create small masterpieces from the 8.7 hectares that this producer controls.

Les Perrières – in the nearby village of La Gravelle. The chalk in this area is very close to the surface, with little topsoil, and it’s mixed with chunks of black silex, which is highly unusual in Champagne, Collin’s vines here are about 30 years old, around 12000bt was produced every year
