Disgorged in November 2019 with 1.5 grams per liter dosage, the latest rendition of Sébastien Mouzon's NV Extra-Brut L'ascendant Solera is based on the 2015 vintage and complemented by 50% reserve wines derived from the domaine's eponymous solera, established in 2010. Offering up aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, fresh hazel and macadamia nuts and oyster shells, it's medium to full-bodied, seamless and complete, with racy acids and a tensile, incisive profile despite the ripe base vintage. This is still quite tightly wound and will blossom with a bit of time on cork. ... More details

The NV Extra Brut Solera L'Ascendant is a blend of the 2014-base Atavique and a perpetual reserve of the Atavique back to 2010. That combination of vintages yields a Champagne with lovely complexity and soft contours for Verzy, where this fruit is sourced. Pear, white flowers and crushed rocks all grace this translucent, inviting Champagne from Mouzon-Leroux. Zero dosage. Disgorged: January, 2019.

Region: Champagne

The beautiful rolling hillsides of the Champagne region of France have, for hundreds of years, been producing many of the world's most famous wines. The sparkling white wines to come out of Champagne's prestigious wineries have conquered the world, and are drank in celebration across the globe. The vast majority of the region is under vine, and grows predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varietals, which are usually blended together by master wine-makers in order to make their recognizable and widely loved produce. The north-easterly region of Champagne has a relatively cool climate, and quite a lot of rainfall, making it far from ideal for ripening grapes. However, the presence of heavily forested areas in the region helps maintain a balanced temperature, and the generations of expertise the wineries hold clearly produces excellent results in spite of the climatic problems.

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
