Because he doesn’t ever want to duplicate his work, Pierre Fresne reinvents himself each year when he blends his cuvées. In his eyes, Nature offers a multitude of possibilities that one must recognize and seize. He experiments, tests, and studies, until he finds the perfect combination, the blend that will express all the aromas of the terroir of his village.


In order to achieve this objective, Pierre does not set any hard and fast rules for himself except those dictated by nature. He is at the crossroads of worlds, at once winegrower, winemaker and sometimes alchemist. Expanding the possibilities available to him has become a leitmotif for this man so considerate of the legacy he will leave for future generations.


Manual harvesting, restricting quantities and volumes pressed, separation of the juices from different parcels, fifteen months of "rest" between bottling and disgorging--the regional regulations for making champagne are rigourous. Rather than resenting these rules as a limit to his creativity, Pierre considers them as guarantees of the quality of his champagnes. He even takes them a step futher: if the year's yield is sufficiently abundant, the secondary juices from the press are systematically set aside, and his cuvées are aged on the lees significantly longer that the required fifteen months. He finds the freedom to express himself in other areas, for example in his blends, which he doesn't hesitate to alter from one year to the next, and in the use of different receptacles such as stainless steel or enameled steel for their neutrality, and barrels of oak or acacia for the character that they bring to the wine.
