The Blanc de noirs expression determines the types of grape varieties used in blending. Blanc de noirs means that the apparently white champagne has actually been made from red grape varieties such as pinot noir and pinot meunier, either together or individually.
Made solely from pinot, noir and meunier, this wonderful wine from Maison Jeeper opens with a powerful nose full of black fruit and berry notes. It has a creamy brioche texture on the palate, with ne bubbles still present. A true champagne for the table, throughout a fine meal.
Wine Growers Since the 18th Century, the Maison Jeeper Story Truly Began in 1949.
It was then that Armand Goutorbe, son of Victor Goutorbe, on his return from the Second World War, decided to produce and sell this Champagne. Armand Goutorbe christened his brand Champagne JEEPER, with an eye to making himself stand out from the many wine growers of the region also named Goutrobe, and in reference to the Jeep Willys bestowed upon him by the US Army to help him ascend the vineyards slopes with ease. Champagne Jeeper largely carries out its operations at the Faverolles and Coëmy site, near Reims, in the north west of the Champagne Region. The site employs around thirty people. Its core business hinges on quality, not only in terms of production and vinification but also by selling bottles of Champagne.
