Growers Champagne is beginning to really push the establish big houses and the newly arrived Champagne La Rogerie is an impressive statement to this trend. Justine and Francois Petit-Boxler own this tiny (0.6 ha) new domaine that only releases small batch Champagne.

New to deVines are two of their gems – the 503 (yes, you read correctly) bottle production of their Cuvée “La Grande Vie” , a 100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards in Avize made from mainly the 2013 harvest with some reserves from 2004 to 2012. Presented in six different bottles, designed by the artist and friend Nicolas Maitrot, meant to represent celebrating life in six different ways. The boxes mirror the foil in this exquisite collection. The second is a vintage dated Blanc de Blancs from the great 2008 vintage, aged on lees for 96 months!! You will agree the packaging is unique and fascinating!

Situated between the current darling of Champagne – Selosse and Louis Roederer of Cristal fame, there is nothing but upside for La Rogerie. The guard seems to be shifting, with young generations bringing in new thoughts in how to create beautiful, high quality wines, and bringing in their fresh ideas that will continue to remold the region over the years. You owe it to yourself to experience this exciting new producer, but don’t wait too long, with small production, we are just greatful just to get a few six packs!

NV Champagne La Rogerie La Grande Vie Blanc de Blancs – Collection 6 – Edition “Moon Vision” (Champagne, France) – $114.99

2008 Champagne La Rogerie Heroine Blanc de Blancs (Champagne, France) – $134.99
