Story

Story

The Champagne COLLARD-PICARD has been founded 1996. It gets its exceptional character in the course of two champagne families which operate two noble terroirs: the right bank of the Marne Valley for the COLLARD branch and the Côte des Blancs for the PICARD family. The ancestral know-how of these real craftsmen has been transmitted for two centuries, from generation to generation. Lending an ear to nature in order to understand and to sublimate her, Olivier and Caroline accompany with smoothness through daily care and an as natural approach as possible (ploughing, grassing, organic fertilizing…). With its address at 15 Avenue de Champagne in EPERNAY, the grower and harvester family company COLLARD-PICARD is guided by an absolute requirement in terms of quality. “More than a family history, a true passion”.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The nose is rich and complex, with notes of candied lemon, apples and a touch of wood. The dry but refreshing palate makes it an ideal champagne to pair with a hot seafood platter.
