Savoir Aimer est une liberté
François Lavergne is a small producer from the south of the region with vineyards in Talus-Saint-Prix. François’ winemaker has a rich history in champagne production
and has developed a number of cuvées using a combination of dosages to create a 'classic' and a 'light' style for both Brut and Rosé Champagnes. Both Rosé cuvées are made from 100% Pinot Meunier.
François is collaborating with Caroline Milan to deliver a new range called
Comtesse de Massy (Jean Milan Oger Grand Cru).
