Champagne Olivier Belin, Essômes-sur-Marne
Champagne Olivier Belin
Olivier Belin, winemaker by profession, passionately cultivates the 17 plots of his estate with his team. Thanks to the hoeing and the maintenance of a natural plant cover, it produces sustainable viticulture throughout the year. He cherishes his old vines which perfectly express the temperament and minerality of his champagnes. He is particularly fond of Meunier, a typical and capricious grape variety from the Marne Valley which enriches his vintages. The pickings and pressing are controlled while respecting each type of soil - clay, limestone tuff, sands, silts ... - so much diversity which brings all the complexity of each Belin cuvée. The vinification takes place in small thermoregulated stainless steel vats and barrels. Olivier produces 6 unique cuvées including “Bel Instant” (90% Meunier), “Bleu Chic” (the Meunier highlighted by Chardonnay), “Clair Obscur” (osmosis between Pinot and Meunier exalted by vinification in barrels) and “Belle < span class = "s5"> de Saignée ” (100% Meunier from a plot on sands planted in 1961 by his grandfather Henri Planson).
