Champagne Agnès Corbon

    “…..The wines of the brilliant Agnès Corbon.”   Decanter 2023 

    Highly regarded by champagne specialists but rather ‘insider’ until recently, Agnès Corbon’s 3.5ha include parcels in the western Marne Valley as well as the crowning glory of 2ha of Chardonnay in Avize Grand Cru where she is based. She took over the family domaine in 2006 and has fashioned new cuves. Her hallmark is long lees-ageing and using base wines which are held in a perpetual solera type blend and also in 30hl oak foudres.  Her wines show the power and minerality of Avize and the complexity of long ageing. She makes just 10,000 bottles a year.   

       “…Agnès Corbon makes some under-the-radar vintage cuvées that deserve a seat at the high table for their combination of demonstrative, aromatic Avize fruit and impeccable restraint.       

    These wines showcase exceptional fruit quality and careful, but characterful oak influence.  Bright and classically shaped, but with a hedonistic twist, these are hard to resist, even young.  Wines that buzz with pale, chalky energy, finesse and class, no matter the age.”
