About the Producer

Ernest Cazals, a cooper from the south of France, moved to Champagne where he met his wife. In 1897, they founded the Cazals house in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Since then, three generations of wine-growers - including Claude Cazals, inventor of the gyropalette - have followed each other at the head of the winery. The estate is now run by Delphine Cazals. The 9 ha of vineyards, all planted with Chardonnay, are located in 4 villages from the Côte des Blancs, south of Epernay: Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Oger, Vertus and Villeneuve. Clos Cazals in Oger (3.70ha) and a few plots in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger are ranked Grand Cru. The others are ranked Premier Cru. The house Blanc de Blancs Champagnes have delicacy, aromatic power and the capacity for long aging.

Farming practices: sustainable, certified HVE (High Environmental Value).
