MARIE DEMETS, Brut. Champagne
"Champagne Marie Demets was formed in 1987 when Marie Brément married Alain Demets. Marie’s family have cultivated the land for many generations and Alain, who used to rent vines from the Brément family, took over the House on Marie’s father’s retirement. Alain and Maries’s son, Pierre, has now taken over the family business.
Marie Demets is located in the Aube in southern Champagne which is renowned for its Pinot Noir. Unusually, Champagnes are produced solely from grapes harvested from the House’s own 10 hectares of vineyards, of which 80% are planted to Pinot Noir and 20% to Chardonnay. The majority of their vines benefit from a south-east exposition, with vines planted in three villages. No herbicides or pesticides are used, with a ‘Lutte Raisonnée’ approach adopted in the vineyard.
The total production of Marie Demets Champagne is now 100,000 bottles and increasing demand for its Champagnes has seen recent investment in new production facilities.
The Brut Tradition contains roughly 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, it is fermented in stainless steel and spends a minimum of 17months in bottle ‘sur lattes’ before being released."
