It is relatively simple to grow, although it buds early and thus is susceptible to spring frosts. It produces lighter, fresher wines than those from Burgundy and gives finesse, fruit and elegance to the final blend. It is the sole grape in Blancs de Blancs , which are some of the richest long-lived Champagnes produced. It is planted across Champagne and particularly so in the southern Aube district. Its durability and resistance to spring frosts make the Marne Valley , a notorious frost pocket, its natural home.
It ripens well in poor years and produces a soft, fruity style of wine that is ideal for blending with the more assertive flavours of Pinot Noir. Brut denotes a dry style of Champagne less than 15 grams per litre. Most Champagne is non-vintage, produced from a blend from different years.
The non-vintage blend is always based predominately on wines made from the current harvest, enriched with aged wines their proportion and age varies by brand from earlier harvests, which impart an additional level of complexity to the end wine. Non-vintage Champagnes can improve with short-term ageing typically two to three years , while vintages can develop over much longer periods five to 30 years.
