 NV Champagne Vincent Couch Elégance Brut: (Reg. 46.99/Sale 40.99) Third generation winemaker Vincent Couche produces fine champagnes from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, grown using strictly organic and biodynamic methods, on 13 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Côte des Bar in the Aube, Champagne's southern region (3 hectares of Chardonnay in Montgueux on chalky soil and 10 hectares in Buxeuil, primarily planted to Pinot Noir, on Argilo Calcaire or Argilo Marneux soil). Under conversion since 2008, they received Ecocert and Demeter certification in 2011. Truly passionate about the health of his vines, Vincent believes that great wine is made in the vineyards, and prefers as little intervention as possible in the winery. He uses innovative methods and is constantly testing the results, and has been participating in a scientific study on the use of "protéodies" to fight mildew and Esca vine disease.
