A secret for only the most die hard Champagne enthusiasts, only talked about by a few and tasted by even less. These wines have been completely unobtainable except for one small private parcel that has come into Australia, that is until now.
Since 1855 and 5 generations later the Fouquet family are now producing their own Champagnes. With a total of 8ha under vine in Cramant, Chouilly and a little in Oiry they sell 5ha to the house of Laurent Perrier while keeping the remainder for themselves.
Richard Fouquet and his wife Karine are now at the helm. Richard believes in aggressive hand pruning resulting in very low yields. The winemaking predominately takes place in stainless steel except for some small parcels going into 400 litre neutral wood. All Grand Cru parcels are 100% Chardonnay.
