CHAMPAGNE TRIBAUT SCHLOESSER
Champagne Tribaut Schloesser was founded in 1929 in the heart of the Champagne region, in Romery, a few kilometers away from the capital of Champagne, Epernay. Tribaut-Schloesser was born from the union of Jean Tribaut with Suzanne Schloesser, both wine growing families.
For four generations, the Tribaut Family has maintained their passion and expertise to produce impressively delicate and refined Champagnes.
The vineyards are situated in the best locations between the Montage de Reims and the Marne Valley, very close to Epernay. Champagne Tribaut's vineyards are made up of 30% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier.
At the winery, two presses of a capacity of 8,000 kg each provide not only a better quality of juice but a reduced waiting-time for the grape on the platform before pressing.
In the winery and cellars, tradition and technological progress are married to ensure the highest quality Champagnes. Aging of the still wines in oak casks is an important signature of Champagne Tribaut-Schloesser. With a capacity of nearly 50 hectoliters, the first casks that were bought on the banks of Bercy date back more than a century. They are reworked every three years to release fresh wood tones. The combination of oak-aged wines and fresh, stainless-steel wines provide a delicate balance that defines the house style.
The house maintains state of the art fermentation, riddling, disgorgement and bottling equipment at the domaine, and the combination of tradition and technology ensure top quality, complexity, and consistency of style.
All Tribaut-Schloesser Champagnes are held for a minimum of 36-39 month on the lees before disgorgement, adding to the complexity of the house style.
