New Arrivals: Champagne R. Faivre

Finna Sze | April 28, 2023

Summer is coming and it is time to store up some Champagne! Today, I am pleased to offer a family-owned boutique champagne house based in Belval-sous-Châtillion.

Champagne R. Faivre was founded in 1953 and has been under the direction of the third generation since 2000. The vineyards are organically farmed and committed to environmental preservation. Each parcel is individually harvested and vinified. Since 2006, the winery has obtained Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (VDC) and High Environmental Value (HVE) certifications.

The Reflet Naturel Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut is made from 100% Pinot Meunier. It is expressive with aromas of yellow fruits, a touch of apricot and peach. Perfect to drink during aperitifs or early evening.

The L’Aguerrie Réserve Extra Brut is a blend of Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It has smooth bubbles and shows aromas of toast, lemon, apple and a touch of gingerbread. The champagne is well-paired with scallops and soft cheese.

The 100% Chardonnay Les Champs de Romy Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut shows white flowers, citrus and plenty of minerality on the palate. It is elegant with a strong structure, perfect with oysters, or even goat cheese.
