« The simplest expression »

Set in the east of the Champagne region, on Mont de Berru, champagne Saint Germain de Crayes unites savoir-faire and traditions.

We passionately grow a vineyard of Chardonnay, Meunier and black Pinot.

Tied to the specificities of their terroir, the blanc de blancs Saint Germain de Crayes cuvées are the essence of a single land, a single grape variety, “Chardonnay”, and a single year. The respect of the origin of the fruit, our knowledge of it and its traceability naturally allow it to give its best.

Champagne Saint Germain de Crayes benefits on average from a 4-year maturing time in our cellars.

 

 

Tradition

Blanc de Blancs

100% CHARDONNAY

Color
Beautiful pale yellow color.

Nose
Very expressive nose with anise notes. Then come numerous vegetal notes (chlorophyll, lime, fern, mint) enwrapped in a hazelnut aroma.

On the palate
Smell and taste are in perfect harmony. The taste is mineral and the fresh hazelnut note makes it very pleasant. This cuvee has the very tonic characteristics of white fruit and citrus. The final mineral note is very subtle.

Brut Nature

Blanc de Blancs

100% CHARDONNAY

Color
Bright wine with a pale yellow color and golden hints.

Nose
This 2005 vintage is astonishing: its aroma hangs between buttery and creamy characters and yellow fruit notes. This wine is both ethereal and strong in character and is getting more Kirsch flavors with time.

On the palate
But let’s not forget that this vintage holds the particularity of having undergone a malolactic fermentation, which gives a very tonic attack. Vine peach and exotic fruit aromas give a lot of freshness. Then anise gives delicacy to honeyed fruit. Finally the vinosity of this vintage appears with notes of mirabelle plum and crystalized figs.

Rosé

Brut

32% Chardonnay
17% Pinot Noir
51% Pinot Meunier
14 % Pinot vinifié en vin rouge
40% vin de réserve

Color
It has a beautiful tender rose color, slightly salmon, with raspberry hints.

Nose
The nose displays melon and strawberry jam aromas. Cherry notes combine with a beautiful expression of Chardonnay. The leathery character that indicates an evolution of the pinots mixes with grenadine aromas.

On the palate
The taste brings us into the undergrowth with moss and small wild strawberries notes. At the end, it presents some kirsch flavors that reveal the beautiful maturity of the cuvee.
