Amaury Beaufort - Bar Sur Seine
Amaury Beaufort is the fifth of Jacques Beaufort's eight children. In 2018, after several years in the family "holding" André Beaufort (dedicated to his grandfather André) decides to begin a personal journey, to cultivate his own ideas regarding the viticulture and winemaking of Champagne.
It all starts from a plot donated to him by his father Jacques, planted in 1968 in Polisy in the Cote de Bar. The plot is called "Le Jardinot", and planted we find pinot noir and chardonnay. For Jacques this was an extremely interesting plot due to the Kimmeridgian limestone soils he owned. Amaury therefore, after making wine with his father from 2006 to 2018, starts from this old vineyard of 0.88ha in mass selection to start his own
project. In addition to this plot, he purchases the grapes of a couple of organic winegrower friends from Polisy who share with him an agricultural vision focused on an incredible quality of grapes.
Amaury harvests the grapes by controlling the degree of acidity and not the sugars, he makes wine in his cellar under his house, in the center of Bar sur Seine. Large barrel, tonneau and barrique. Malolactic fermentation carried out. Decant to keep on the fine lees. Aging of the Vin Claire for at least 2 winters in wood, which is a great uniqueness shared with his father for some great wines. Tirage with grape must. And then, the magic. Amaury Beaufort wines are GREAT wines even before being GREAT Champagnes.
