Pierre Trichet’s handshake informs the visitor immediately, his hands are his working tools! The new labels, illustrated with closeup pictures of his hands that plant the stock, prune, remove the vine shoots, plough at the foot, also prove it. In the vathouse, they blend, open and close the taps, check the temperature, disgorge…In the cellar they dig, re-open ancient chalk galleries at eight meters deep, restore them to host thousands of bottles in stacks. Pierre Trichet is a genuine handicraftsman.
The man with character crafts Champagnes that are true to his personality. “All my wines are fragrant. Should they have no aromas, I would not bottle them, Pierre explains. I love round wines that remain in memory. I prefer fruitiness to minerality, I appreciate the scents of a basket of fresh fruits”.
