Must of Pinots Noirs and Meuniers from the 2018 harvest associated with Marc de Champagne.
Bottled : July 2019.
The « Ratafia », is an ancestral product of the Champagne region since the 13th century, long considered as “the winegrower’s aperitif”, it was recognised in 2015 as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). The ratafia is a “Mistelle” i.e. a “fresh grape must”to which strong alcohol obtained by distillation (Marc de Champagne) has been added. The added alcohol prevents fermentation and thus preserves the aromatic potential of the fresh grape. The grapes used for the musts must be the same as those claimed in the Champagne or Coteaux Champenois designations . Manufacturing must take place within 20 days of the date of pressing of the grapes used to make up the must.
