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.

An adventure, like the one undertaken by those who crossed the ocean to discover the New World. Made from grapes from a single year, it is a unique and free interpretation of the Fresne Ducret style, balancing freshness and aromatic complexity. Crystalline with a pale golden colour. Good effervescence and a stable “cordon” after serving. The nose is fresh, dominated by floral notes with hints of citrus. In the mouth, a savoury dimension with a balanced astringency, with aromas of orange zest and honey. The wine is lively, dynamic, and moreish, a vintage still in its youth.

Serve with goat cheese, small game, or rhubarb millefeuille.
