Agnes Corbon

organic

Agnes Corbon’s diminutive domain is located in the Grand Cru village of Avize, in the Cote des Blancs.  The village’s vineyards form a natural amphitheater on the flank of the hills, creating perfect exposure for optimal ripening.  Together with her father Claude, Agnes Corbon presides over some of the most careful and artisanal blanc des blancs winemaking in the region, producing a range of truly compelling wines.  

Vineyards and cellar are both fully organic.
