A vintage champagne from 2010, named after the Sainte Germaine chapel in Bar-sur-Aube. It represents the balancing act between tradition, modernity and the character of the region. True to the style of the De Barfontarc cooperative. Slender and with a beautiful complexity. 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from the southern part of Champagne around Baroville.
- In the glass a light yellow colour with fine perlage.
- Very pleasing to the nose. Champagne connoisseurs will detect notes of pastry and yellow fruits such as quince.
- Crispness and acidity unfold on the palate. Elegant and balanced with a pleasant depth and intensity.
- Great aperitif.
- Good companion to mushroom dishes and truffles.
- Also goes well with white meat.
The Champagne House De Barfontarc
In 1962, some 50 winegrowers from the villages of Baroville, Fontaine and Arconville in the Côte des Bar joined forces to found the “Coopérative Vinicole de la Région Baroville”. At the beginning, this was solely a facility for processing grapes, but in the course of time, the cooperative also began to create its own champagne and adopted the name “De Barfontarc”, composed of the first syllables of the three growing regions. To this day, the original winegrowers are still part of the Baroville-based cooperative and cultivate a total of 112 hectares of vines, aided by 20 employees. Over the years, “De Barfontarc” has succeeded in developing a large collection of fruity champagnes, which embody the characteristic taste of the southern part of Champagne and regularly win prizes.
