Clotilde Davenne Cremant de Bourgogne
Independent vigneron Clotilde Davenne built her 8.5-hectare domaine in the Yonne, parcel by parcel over the last nine years, initially while simultaneously working as the chef oenologue for the prestigious Chablis house of Jean-Marc Brocard. Her dream had always been to have her "hands on" all aspects of the production and as a grower she is now fully integrated into the life of each of her wines, from bud break to bottle. The results are soulful, expressively vibrant wines that uniquely speak of the particularity of their origin. Many come from extremely old and deep-rooted, low-yielding vines, and viticulture is practiced with great respect for the environment and no filtration is used prior to bottling.
