The ‘Chromatique’ cuvée is taken from bits and pieces of all of the sites with which Regnault works, to give a ‘chromatic’ representation of the terroir—one that, as in the musical term, ‘uses all the notes.’

Included are vines from Le Mesnil, toward the bottoms of very chalky slopes, and some from Oger, where the soils are richer. Base vintage 2019: 30% of the cuvée is fermented in wood; 30% is in steel; 40% is reserve wine from a perpetual solera started in 2014. Malolactic fermentation is completed. Dosage: 0 g/L (Brut Nature).

New Champagne vigneron Stéphane Regnault’s story is a colorful one: an aerospace engineer in his early career, he later transitioned to the wine world, working as a sommelier in high-end restaurants in Paris and London. Growing up in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil, Stéphane’s family sold all the grapes they farmed to large houses, but after many years of working in different industries, in 2007 he returned to the family home and immediately began to make changes, not least of which was to be the first in his family to produce estate-made wines.
