The Champagne is ripe and creamy. Fresh, clear and strong on the nose, with a balanced oxidative style. It has notes of red fruit, citrus and butter, fine minerality and soft woody aromas. On the mouth the wine is crunchy and it combines ripe fruit, citrus notes and freshly and vibrant acidity. Salty and refreshing finishing.
White chalk under a thin clayey lay, depending on parcels.

Alexandre Filaine is a tiny company managed by Fabrice Gass, who had previously worked for Bollinger, and who, making the most of this experience, started to produce, by personal passion, a very limited quantity of prime Champagne. The privately-owned vineyards, which extend over just a hectare and a half, divided into seven plots, at Damery in the Marne valley, yield about 5.000 bottles a year.
