Slide BRUT BLANC DE NOIRS EMPREINTE For Sacha This Champagne bears the hallmark of the Pinot Noir variety from the heart of the Cumières Terroir. We aim to offer the best expression of Pinot Noir from several different plots of the Terroir each year. This Champagne owes its complexity and its substance to the chalky clay soil and then reveals an elegance that typifies the great Terroirs.
