Relative newcomers to the Champagne sector, two dynamic Cotes de Bar natives with Champagne in their veins, are united in a passion to create terroir-based quality Champagne. On show will be an innovative range of barrel-fermented Champagnes, focused on Monocépages, including:

Récolte Noire : Blanc de Noirs, 100% Pinot Noir

Récolte Blanche : Blanc de Blancs, 100% Chardonnay

Récolte Brute : Extra-Brut, 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay

Récolte Rose : Rosé, 100% Pinot Noir

Dosnon and Lepage seek to produce complex and full Champagnes while preserving their finesse and their purity with a low dosage. They believe that the use of oak imparts complexity to their wines, and they opt for barrels over 5 years old to ensure that the wood does not confer tannins or flavour to their Champagne.

The wines are much acclaimed in France, and having no UK distribution yet, Dosnon & Lepage are looking to replicate this success on the Irish market.
