La Cote aux Enfants comes from a small plot of 70 acres, located in the heart of the terroir of Ay one of champagne's Grands Crus. Exceptional for its exposure and the quality of its soil, it is exclusively planted with Pinot Noir.
Originally, Champagne was reputed for... its red wines. It is also said that it ousted the wines of Burgundy from the table of Henri IV. The most renowned were those of Aÿ and indeed it was usual for all red wines from Champagne to be refered to as 'Vin d'Ay.
The red coteaux champenois (the denomination that describes still wines from Champagne) from Ay. 'La Côte aux Enfants', therefore constitutes a return to the origins of Champagne. It is only produced in exceptional years from a small plot, 'la Côte aux Enfants', ideally located in the heart of the terroir of Aÿ and planted with pinot noir.
