0,75L

Clos de Cumières is a historic vineyard, dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, and is probably one of the oldest Clos in Champagne. It covers 0.54 hectares and was planted in 1964 and 1965 with a massal selection of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

In 2011, Hervé and Yann Jestin bought the vineyard and 2012 marks the first vintage under their ownership. Currently, 12 harvests are maturing in the cellars. The grapes are harvested on fruit days, which is a common biodynamic practice to enhance the quality of the fruit.

Freshness

Harmonious balance between the various components of acidity.

Roundness

Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.

Power

Generous champagne with great intensity.

Long on the palate

Champagne aromas linger on the palate.

Tasting

Along with the other cuvée from Champagne Jestin this is a rare and exceptional champagne.

Gorgeous nose, with lots of toasted brioche (almost smoky), ripe citrus, berry notes and maybe even watermelon rind, a little ginger and pie spice also come up.

The palate offers a creamy mousse and layered fruit concentration culminating on a long saline finish. A truly captivating wine.
