This house is a small grower-producer of fine Champagne. Picard is the only récolant-manipulant in the Mont de Bern. Most of the other growers use a cooperative or sell grapes to the principal Champagne houses. The Picard estate practices “involved viticulture,” without getting into biodynamic fanaticism. They not only press and vinify parcels separately, but go so far as to treat each different clonal selection individually.

Picard is the only récolant-manipulant in the Mont de Bern. Most of the other growers use a cooperative or sell grapes to the principal Champagne houses. The Picard estate practices “involved viticulture,” without getting into biodynamic fanaticism. They not only press and vinify parcels separately, but go so far as to treat each different clonal selection individually. 100% Pinot Noir, Montagne de Reims. · Young with floral and berry aromas. Plenty of weight and density with a lot of Pinot Noir flavor. A high acid finish. Reviewed August 6, 2007 ARTICLE »
