Côte Des Blancs
Directly south of the town of Épernay, the Côte des Blancs (literally "Hill of Whites") is planted almost exclusively to chardonnay, as the name indicates. The chardonnay grapes grown here have unequaled finesse; creamy and complex. Wine pros will argue any point, but we at fatcork are sticklers to the belief that there is no region in the world producing finer chardonnay than Côte des Blancs. Our selections from this magical region have distinct chalk and minerality---no doubt a quality they picked up directly from the chalky limestone soil that runs underfoot.
