The Côte des Bar is located in the southern part of the Champagne production area, characterised by Jurassic slopes overlying Kimmeridgian limestone bedrock. Crisscrossed by small lush valleys that connect with those of the Seine and Aube, the Côte des Bars encompasses a patchwork of vineyards with as many different exposures. The predominant planting is the Pinot Noir, which thanks to climate, geology and careful vine husbandry, produces wines with a distinctive lightness that makes them much-sought after by the master blenders of Champagne’s leading Houses.
