Founded in 1872 and certified organic and biodynamic from the 1980s, Leclerc Briant is known for the production of premium wines, predominantly from Premier Cru vineyards, that possess verve, energy and tension. The house is also known for utilising original concepts when it comes to Champagne production. This was highlighted by the widely anticipated launch of their ‘cuvée Abyss’ – a champagne aged at the bottom of the sea. 500 bottles of champagne from the 2013 vintage were aged for two years sur lattes, disgorged and left without dosage. They were then transferred to a metal cage that was plunged to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brittany, where they were aged for an additional year.
