Tribaut La Cuvée René
This cuvée, named in honour of René Schloesser, the founder of the champagne house, is made each year from parcels of Chardonnay from the Crayères de Romery vineyards and Pinot Noir grapes from the Crossats d’ Écueil .
It is composed of 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, fermentation in oak barrels. Blending with 50 % reserve wines aged in large oak casks (foudres), and 6-8 years on the lees before disgorgement enhances its lovely complexity.
Dosage is 6 grams of sugar per litre.
Since 2019 Tribaut has been one of the first Champagne houses to convert to fully organic growing – a rarity in Champagne and something that for the large Houses is almost impossible.

A very expressive and complex cuvée revealing fine aromas of hazelnut, vanilla and brioche. There is a mineral entry to the palate which then fattens out to a well-balanced structure, revealing pastry and candied fruit aromas.
Ideal as an aperitif or enjoyed with white meat.
About the Producer
Tribaut-Schloesser was founded in 1929 in the heart of the Champagne region in Romery, near Epernay. Four generations of the family have now built upon their passion and expertise to produce a range of impressively delicate and refined Champagnes.
Tribaut’s 25ha of vineyards are situated on sunny south west facing slopes in the very best locations between the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley. They are planted with the three principal varietals allowing all of their Champagnes to be produced solely with their own grapes.
