Andre Heucq Champagne "Heritage"

$47.99
Andre Heucq and his daughter, Fanny, are the 3rd and 4th generation of this small domaine that was founded by its namesake in 1936. Heucq is a true Grower Champagne and family-run operation with Fanny supervising the winemaking and marketing while Andr� focuses on the cellar and the 5.7 hectares of his biodynamically and organically farmed vineyards. As winemakers, Andr� and Fanny Heucq define a style of Champagne that is fine, elegant, streamlined, and just as reflective of the terroir as it is of Andr��s own reserved personality. The family has embraced biodynamics since before the 1990s and continues to plough by horse, maintain natural ground cover, and stick to natural fertilizers and herbal tea treatments. The winery itself, perched at the north of the right-bank village of Cuisles, is self-sustaining and ECOCERT certified for producing its own electricity, recycling wastewater, and it is thermoregulated by a cooling Canadian well system. For the wines, oak is used to elevate the character of Pinot Meunier, sugar dosages are restrained to preserve the terroir, and sulfite levels stay between 15 and 20mg/L.
