Francis Boulard & Fille, ”Petraea” Brut Nature, 6 Bottle Case

Terroir: Clay and limestone terroirs from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims.

Average age of vines: 35 years old

Vinification: This is created using a method similar to that of the Solera. Each year, the previous year's wine is added in the proportion of 25%. This means that the wine contains some of all the earlier vintages in decreasing proportions. This perpetual reserve was started in 1997.

Francis ran the family estate with his siblings for a decade before they became estranged over the farming practices he had introduced and decided to split the family holdings. Francis and his daughter Delphine, with their three hectares, finally farm the way they want, the biodynamic certification having been achieved in 2007. Their vines average around 35 years and the three grape varieties are almost equally represented in the vineyard.
