Champagne Les Sarments d'Aÿ Moet & Chandon
Champagne Les Sarments d'Aÿ is part of a selection, La Trilogie des Grands Crus, created to show the potential of its own vineyards and varieties: a Chardonnay from the vineyard Les Vignes de Saran, in the village of Chouilly; a Pinot Meunier from Les Champs de Romont, in Sillery; and a Pinot Noir from Les Sarments d'Aÿ, in the village of Aÿ. All three vineyards, which are located in villages designated as grands crus for the selected varieties, are the exclusive property of Moët & Chandon.
The Pinot Noir of Aÿ, which is considered one of the best grand crus for the variety, is the narrowest of the three and shows the greatest potential for development over time. Les Sarments d'Aÿ offers intense peach and hazelnut nuances against a vivid backdrop. Moët has owned the south-facing vineyard since 1798.
