Several generations have succeeded in writing the history of this Champagne house. Historically Harvester-Cooperator in the Launois family. Julien wanted to make his own champagne. In 2010, Accompanied by Sarah, his wife, this young couple of passionate winegrowers created their own champagne house in the small village of Mesnil-sur-Oger. The estate took the name of their son: Paul and their first harvest was harvested in 2015.
The labels of their different cuvées were created and designed by Sarah, an artist and graphic designer by training.
The six hectares of vines cultivated by Julien are located in the much sought-after village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. A Chardonnay lover's paradise. This vineyard planted almost entirely in Chardonnay is classified as "Grand Cru".
The estate produces 25,000 bottles a year and all the grapes are Chardonnay in the commune of Mesnil-sur-Oger.
The farm works with respect for the environment (no chemical inputs to the vineyard and the cellar). The vines are naturally grassed in winter, and in summer the soil is plowed.

Vinification and aging
From a grape variety and blend between one year of harvest and 30% reserve wine. They are aged at 65% in stainless steel vats and 5% in oak barrels, with malolactic fermentation and with a dosage of 2g/l. This Blancs de Blancs also matures for 24 months on these lees.
The press used at the estate is a traditional basket press. It requires a lot of manual work, especially the part called the roll-up.
A golden yellow color, limpid with very fine bubbles.
A frank and straightforward bouquet with notes of Yuzu, butter and mineral.
A crisp and balanced palate, with lemony and mineral (chalk) aromas for a delicate finish with saline touches.
