Wines / France / Marne / Cote des Blancs

The Cote des Blancs, a curving ring of hills facing east and southeast just south of the Vallee de la Marne, is home base for the Chardonnay grape.  Pure chalk underlies the soil of the region, and it produces wines of power, finesse and elegance.  Home to the Grands Crus villages of Avize, Chouilly, Cremant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Oiry, the region is famed primarily for its Blanc de Blancs Champagnes, made of 100% Chardonnay.
