About the Wine
In 1811, the young Charles Gabriel De Cazanove, an ambitious 24-year-old from a long line of master glassmakers, founded his own Champagne House in Avize, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Over 2 centuries later, Champagne Charles de Cazanove is synonymous with family, dedication and a unique expertise carefully handed down through generations.
Today, Champagne Charles de Cazanove enjoys the use of efficient oenological and technological facilities and produces over 3 million bottles a year. Vinification mostly takes place in stainless steel vats, but where necessary, some wines spend time in oak to acquire that wonderful fullness that oak barrels provide. The wines take time to age in the traditional Champagne chalk cellar.
