Ponson La Petite Montagne Extra Brut NV
Varietals: Pinot Noir (20%), Pinot Meunier (35%), Chardonnay (45%)
The village of Coloummes la Montage is in the tiny 'Petite Montagne' region. Maxime’s first cuvée originally produced from his experimental slice of organically grown vineyards. Now the entire estate is farmed organically and the fruit for this comes from multiple parcels across the estate holdings, but continues to be labeled simply Ponson, instead of being labeled under the family domaine, Pascal Ponson.
For five generations the Ponson family has been working vines and producing wine in the Montagne des Reims, primarily in the Petite Montagne sub-appellation, one of Champagnes largest homes of Pinot Meunier plantings. The domaine is currently under the lead of Maxime Ponson along with his younger brother, Camille.
