PRODUCER: The “birth certificate“ of the Mandois vineyards dates back to 1735 when the family decided to acquire some vineyards in Champagne. At that time, Jean Mandois, a contemporary of Brother Oudart, possessed and worked a few plots of vines on the hillsides of Epernay. 1860 was a revolutionary year in the long family history. This was the year when Jean Mandois' great-grandson, Victor Mandois, a visionary and trailblazer, took the decision that he would vinify and sell the wines of Champagne in Epernay.
Thanks to Victor's passion for his craft, shared by the ensuing generations inspired by his work, Champagne Mandois is now available around the world and is reputed to be among the great Champagne Houses.
WINEMAKING: 100% Chardonnay from Premier Cru villages Chouilly, Vertus, Chouilly, Vertus and the old vineyard of La Côte de Sézanne. Vinification 70% in stainless steel and 30% in oak barrels, follow by 9 years on lees. Dosage 5 gr/l.
