The vines are tended throughout the year, and, as winter draws to a close, the plants are pruned, and only the most promising shoots are left to grow. These branches are guided so that the sun can reach the grapes and help them grow to full ripeness.
The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, so that the best bunches can be selected and kept intact.
Three varietals are gathered:
• Chardonnay, for a touch of finesse and vivaciousness,
• Pinot Noir, for its full body and depth,
• Pinot Meunier, which is round and fruity.
Behind there finest range of champagne are the creators of Heidsieck & CO Monopole’s savoir-faire. Since 1785, they have preserved the excellence of our vineyards, guaranteeing the quality and finesse of our champagnes.
This is how Hervé Ladouce, the cellar director, protects the Monopole style they hold to be so precious. His vision nourishes our champagnes, enabling them to last for years and generations.
The grapes are pressed in traditional presses that contain 4,000 kg of grapes, from which 2,550 litres of juice are extracted.
Initial alcoholic fermentation turns the grape juice contained in the vats into wine, under the action of selected yeasts.
A blend is a combination of several wines made from different varietals, different crus, or different vintages.
Racking consists in bottling blended wines and then adding sugar and yeasts.
The second alcoholic fermentation takes place in cellar kept at a constant temperature of 10°C.
This slowly turns the wine into effervescent Champagne as it develops a foam.
