Description

TERRE - an artisan winemaker's champagne full of character, which like the earth embodies minerality and structure. It shows an extraordinary expression and individuality. Terre is characterised by a delicate bouquet and a fine perlage with a soft, velvety finish. On the palate, this champagne presents itself with a lively acidity, a fine vein of minerality and hints of citrus fruits, caramel, dried figs and a little coconut. This champagne can be served, like white Burgundy, at a slightly higher temperature. No added sulphur; contains only naturally occurring sulphites.

Champagne Augustin

When the paths of Emmanuelle and Marc crossed, two champagne houses that had existed for four and five generations respectively came together. It was a union that gave birth to a shared passion: Champagne Augustin.

Marc and Emmanuelle Augustin refer to themselves as "coeurviticulteurs", loosely translated as "winemakers with heart". They have dedicated themselves to their work with their hearts and minds, cultivating their vines using biodynamic methods involving empathy and sensitive, constant observation of nature.

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Blueprint of the terroir

No other variety expresses its terroir as precisely as Pinot noir. It is a sensitive, fragile grape. But when it succeeds, it gives the world some of its very greatest wine plants. It especially excels in Burgundy, where it has been cultivated for at least 700 years. Even in the middle ages, it was considered so precious that it was kept separate from other grapes so as to not diminish its value. The finest examples are delicate and fragrant with aromas of cherries and red berries. With maturity, notes of forest floor, leather and truffles enter as well. An irresistible fruity sweetness still shines through, even after several decades. The Pinot noir does well in cool locations: in Switzerland and in Germany, where it is known as Blauburgunder and Spätburgunder respectively; in Alsace and in South Tyrol, in Oregon, New Zealand and Tasmania. Not least, it yields fantastic champagnes. It is a wonderful culinary companion. With its soft tannins and charming bouquet, it meshes with everything, from Güggeli and cheeses to fried fish.

France – Philosophy in a bottle

According to French philosophy, wine should be an expression of the soil and climate. They use the word “terroir” to describe this. Terroir makes every wine different, and many especially good. French wine is regarded worldwide as an expression of cultural perfection. The French believe that humans are responsible for the quality of the berries, the vine variety for their character, and nature for the quantity. This philosophy can be expressed succinctly as: “the truth is the vineyard, not the man.”
