Chardonnay
90% Shar-do-NAY
Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.
Pinot Noir
10% Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

Champagne JL Vergnon

Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, France


Didier Vergnon and his son Clément are the 4th and 5th generations in their family to lead this 5-hectare estate located in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger with a focus on Chardonnay-based Champagne. 


The estate was originally founded in 1950. In the 1980’s, they began making estate wine from top sites in and around the esteemed Les Chetillons.  They now practice organic farming which is no longer a rarity, remains far from common. 

The wines have zero chaptalization and avoid malolactic fermentation, along with a low or zero dosage, yielding wines with tension and vivacity along with transparency and respect to the terroir. Vergon's wines exhibit the potential of Chardonnay as the sole varietal in Blancs des Blancs.
