Cuvée L'Atavique by Mouzon Leroux is a champagne composed of 65% of Pinot Noir and 35% of Chardonnay. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in wood and small steel cuves where malolactic fermentation is also carried out to limit the addition of sulphites. The wine is neither filament nor stabilized and no collages are carried out. The grapes used are those of the 2013 harvest with the addition of reserve wines.
Family winemakers since 1776, they carry on the necessary traditions of patience and traditional savoir-faire to produce Fine Champagne.
Today, three people lead the estate: Pascale, Philippe and Sébastien Mouzon.
They grow 7.5 hectares of vines on approximately 50 plots mainly in Verzy.
Seven grape varieties from the Champagne region perfect this diversity (Arbanne, Petit Meslier,Pinot gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir et Chardonnay).
The chemistry between the soil, climate and vines naturally create Champagne from the terroir with distinctive and authentic characteristics.
