From generation to generation our family has produced Champagne by combining time-honored tradition with the latest oenological innovations. We take great pride in expressing the special character of the terroir and cepages of our region. Chiquet farms 23 heactares in the Valle de la Marne in the villages of Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers and Mareuil-sur-Ay. All of the fruit (including that which is used in the non-vintage cuvee) comes from premiere and grand cru grapes. Nicolas does not employ any oak aging at Gaston Chiquet; he believes that concentration, fruit maturity and malolactic fermentation impart enough body and texture to make aging in barrel unnecessary.

Full of pastry and warm spice notes, this inviting bubbly shows more secondary notes of coffee and vanilla than fruit. Easygoing, yet with enough intensity and complexity to maintain interest through the finish.

Light yellow. Wonderfully pure and vibrant nose offers a striking interplay of fresh citrus, musky orchard fruit aromas and tangy sea salt accents. Rich and creamy in texture, displaying lively orange, peach, cherry pit and lemon zest flavors and finishing with a bright mineral quality. The full range of white and red fruits plays out here, with impeccable balance and clarity.
