Oger belongs to these latter, which features an outstanding guarantee of quality and delicacy. The company CHAPUY, located in Oger, offers you the privilege to receive at home one of the rarest “Grands Crus” rated at 100%: a good brand, featured by its first-rate quality at prices more than affordable.
"Lightness, delicacy and freshness."
Most of our Champagnes are made of a blending of wines that have undergone their malolactic fermentation and other not only the vintage Champagnes were fully vinified without malolactic fermentation to retain their freshness in time.
Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Clarification involves only filtering but no centrifuging. Blended wines are finally bottled to start their secondary fermentation "Prise de mousse", 6 to 8 months after the harvest.
Conservation "sur lattes" (maturation on lees in the bottle): 2 to 3 years for non-vintage Cuvées and 5 years for vintage Champagnes.
Storage after disgorging: 3 to 6 months depending on he season'sales.
The dosage or "liqueur d'expédition" is only based on Chardonnay wines so that it doesn't mark aromatically the vintage Cuvées.
Champagne CHAPUY is a Family Estate of 8 ha of vineyards . The majority of them are planted in the "Côte des Blancs" with Chardonnay grape variety, which allows to produce a fine and light Blanc de Blancs Champagne, very typical of this region. Among them, 3 ha belong to the famous "Grand Cru" village of Oger. Other family plots, located in the "Coteaux Sud d'Epernay" and planted with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties (3ha), are used to produce the blended Champagnes, more fruity and mellow.
CHAPUY Family is inextricably linked with Oger's history because one of its ancestors was mayor of the village just after the French Revolution.
