Sophie Baron Champagne comes from a family run property in Charly-sur-Marne. The Champagne is named after Sophie, the daughter of the founders Gabriel and Dolorès. She joined the property in 1982 and works alongside her winemaker brother, Ignace.
The Baron family owns 38 hectares of sustainably managed vineyards that are largely planted with Pinot Meunier. The Pinot Meunier dominant blend (60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir) gives richness and red berry fruit to this crisp and lively Champagne.
The Grande Réserve is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and undergoes malolactic fermentation to give it roundness. It is aged on its lees for three years and has a balanced dosage of 10g/l residual sugar.
