Based in the village of Avize, proprietors Jean-Herve and Laurent Chiquet are in the final stages of their progression towards estate-owned, biodynamically farmed vineyards. In the meantime, they continue to purchase top quality fruit from their good friends and neighbors to craft bright, chalky wines with a balanced richness and ageability that makes the ‘700 series’ some of our favorite Champagnes. ‘Cuvée No. 745’ is comprised mostly of wines from the 2017 vintage in addition to some reserve wines. The end of the growing season was hot and rainy resulting in a richer and more dense style.
