About the Winery
Champagne Fresne Ducret
Fresne-Ducret is rich in family history and has been rooted in the premier cru village of Villedommange since the mid 1800s. Originally growing grapes for the big champagne houses, it wasn’t until the end of the second world war that the family decided to make their own wine. The tradition carries on today with Pierre Fresne and his wife Daniella (an Oakville ex-pat). Their philosophy is to produce wines that best exemplify the terroir of Villedommange, and they do this with sustainability in mind.
In 2014, Pierre Fresne embarked on a new adventure by creating a limited series of champagnes based on his desire for experimentation. Since then, he has produced one or two of these wines each year. Each are unique, according to his wishes and the profile of the vintage. This unique collection is called Arquémie, the term for alchemy in the Middle Ages. In 2018 Pierre began converting the vineyards to organic viticulture, and 2021 will be their first organic certified vintage.
95 points - John Szabo, MS
This is classy, bone dry, complex and complete champagne, in no need of dosage (sugar) to find ideal balance. The profile features both fresh and dried fruit and plenty of autolysis-yeasty-doughy-brioche character, and outstanding length, finishing on savoury-sotolone flavours like maple syrup and fenugreek. Classy and composed, genuinely intense and concentrated, also very breezy and representative. Superb quality sparkling wine.
