Champagne Janisson et Fils Blancs de Noirs Grand Cru
A pale golden colour with golden highlights and remarkable yellow gold tints.
The mousse is fine and abundant, forming a delicate stream of bubbles. A very welcoming and enticing nose. The complex and opulent aromas have now reached maturity. The character of the Pinot Noir grapes delivers a range of very juicy, fruity aromas. Initial notes of brioche and honey appear, and floral bouquet adds refinement to this divine nose. A distinct, fresh immediate mouth feel. The acidity is balanced by the full-bodied taste of the wine. The mouth is composed of fleshy fruit – peach, apricot and nectarine. The finish is very long and finely balanced, with scents of citrus fruits and flowers echoing its bouquet.

Grapes: Pinot Noir
Making Champagne flows through the veins of renowned winemaker Manuel Janisson. Both his maternal and paternal grandfathers were Champagne producers. The House of Janisson et Fils lies in the idyllic Grand Cru village of Verzenay where they own seven hectares of vineyards and have been producing Champagnes since 1923.
Applying the principles of "lutte raisonnée" in his viticulture, Manual Janisson seeks to be in harmony with nature in order to extract the best from its terroir. The brand new state-of-the-art winery uses the latest techniques in winemaking, however, Manuel and his very talented oenologue Cyril Tanazacq are not shy to also employ traditional methods, such as fermentation in wooden barrels, this with the aim to produce harmonious wines as opposed to "technical wines".
Being a boutique Champagne producer with a very small production and a focus on quality, Janisson do not use Pinot Meunier and purely produce the 2 noble varieties of Champagne, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Being located in the Montagne de Reims, Janisson Champagne is dominated by Pinot Noir (70% in his Brut Tradition).
