Champagne Blanc de Blancs "Prestige", Diebolt-Vallois
'This is produced from premier holdings in the famous village of Cramant, where the family live and make wine. It is a wine admired by the best restaurants in France (and around the world) and after tasting it one can quickly see why. It's the epitome of finesse in Champagne - graceful, elegant yet very precise. Wonderful Champagne.
One of the most iconic and highly respected growers in the Côte des Blancs, Jacques Diebolt has been making champagne since the late 1950's. The estate in its present form dates from 1960, when Jacques Diebolt married Nadia Vallois, bringing a portion of the Vallois family’s holdings into the Diebolt estate.
One reason for the extraordinary character and quality of Diebolt’s wines is undoubtedly the magnificent collection of vineyards located in some of the most favored sectors of Cramant, as well as additional holdings in Chouilly, Cuis and Epernay. These vineyards include some very old vines which Diebolt uses for his top cuvées.'
