High quality standards are maintained in the selection of grapes, traditional vinification and maturing in small 228 litre oak casks. Alfred Gratien make a conscious decision not to use malolactic fermentation in the production of their champagne. This is to ensure that it maintains its original character and the wine retains its freshness, even as it ages. The result is a glorious, biscuity Champagne with citrus, white flowers and fresh butter on the nose and fine minerality balancing the flavours of sweet pastry and orchard fruit.
