Champagne Jean de Villar Grande Rserve - Jean de Villar

Jean de Villaré presents this elegant Grande Réserve Brut, a Champagne elaborated from a cuvée composed of 65 percent Meunier, a grape variety typical of the Marne region, where it is preferred to others for its consistency of production, and 35 percent Chardonnay, which gives the blend that note of unquestionable elegance. After bottling, this Champagne rests for about 3 years on its lees. A delicate refinement phase that allows it to achieve the right complexity, without losing freshness and pleasantness. Pale golden color, this Jean de Villaré-branded Champagne reveals elegant and pure notes. It is easy to distinguish the juiciest apple, peach and even apricot. The mouth then reveals a particularly balanced and complex Champagne. It impresses, in particular, with the pleasant roundness and very long persistence it offers. Perfect as an aperitif, this sparkling wine will tastefully accompany an entire meal.

This is the story of young Jean, a native of Paris, who at the age of 15 joined Napoleon's army. Here, thanks to his intelligence he was soon noticed by his superiors, and this enabled him to quickly climb the military hierarchy, reaching the side of the emperor, who (famously) was a Champagne enthusiast. It was thus he who introduced young Jean to the joys of bubbles. And so it was that after serving his long period of exile with Napoleon on St. Helena, Jean decided to return to Paris to start a family. But once home, he realized that city life no longer suited his character and soon decided to leave the capital to seek his fortune in Reims. He thus reached Villaré, a small village where he spent the night in a tavern. The next morning he decided to explore the area, coming across a wonderful vineyard in Chantemanche, just outside Villaré. Having acquired the land, Jean began to cultivate his vines and produce his own bottles of Champagne. Jean de Villaré was born. Everything continued for the best until the end of the 19th century, by which time Jean's estate could count on as many as 60,000 hectares planted with vines. But at that point, all of a sudden, the arrival of phylloxera ruined everything, even causing the uprooting of the vineyards. In the 1980s, the Baron-Fuenté family began to purchase plots of land and replant vines in the same locations. Today, the family owns as many as 10 hectares of Chardonnay in Chantemanche. In memory of the valiant Jean, the Baron-Fuenté family then created the Jean de Villaré brand, which achieves excellent results in major international markets.
