Champagne // France

An elegant and complex Blanc de Blancs with richness, good minerality and a nice length. 

The cuvée is made from 100% Chardonnay grown in the parcel of the same name. 

The name “Martin-Fontaine” is derived from “Mort Fontaine,” French for “dead fountain,” and refers to an old water source at the bottom of the hill.

Ruppert-Leroy produces only 3,500 bottles of this cuvée each year.
The Aube is Champagne’s frontier, the place where a new generation of vignerons are pursuing unique visions of how to express their terroirs, unconstrained by conventional wisdom. 

The embodiment of this pioneering spirit can be found in Gerard Ruppert and his daughter Benedicte Leroy. Their magical Champagnes are the result of a special site, farmed organically for the past thirty years, and methods developed through a strong empirical sense and the courage to experiment.

If there is any place in the Aube that is best suited for the “Burgundy with bubbles” philosophy of the region’s best growers, it is here. And that ethos is exemplified by the striking terroir expression of Ruppert-Leroy’s cuvées.

Every cuvee comes from a single year, a single parcel and always without dosage.
