Leclerc Briant has created Abyss, a champagne from the 2013 harvest, specifically adapted to ageing under the sea.
The grapes used for this champagne are specially selected from vineyards well-known for their chalk sub-soil at, or very close to, the surface, so they are perfectly suited to the conditions on the seabed in the Bay of Stiff just off the island of Ushant, in Brittany.
Equal parts of chardonnay from Bisseuil, pinot noir from Avenay-Val-d’Or and pinot meunier from Vrigny go into this extraordinary and evocative cuvée
