Michel Turgy Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Domaine Michel Turgy crafts “grower” Champagne, a récoltant-manipulant house that grows its own grapes and makes its own wine, all on site. This qualitative difference is crucial for those seeking the ultimate in Champagne flavor and character.
Vines are cared for according to lutte raisonée principles, adhering to organic practices as much as possible and avoiding chemical treatments. Hillside vineyards, all rated 100% Grand Cru, are pure chalk; vines are on average 30 years old.
Grapes are harvested by hand and pressed gently in an old-fashioned, upright Champagne press. Juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, with full malolactic fermentation following. Wines undergo a secondary fermentation in bottle (méthode Champenoise) and are disgorged by hand. Vintage wines are aged from five to seven years, depending on the requirements of the vintage.
