Chiquet's Blanc de Blancs d'AY is composed entirely of Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards around the village of AY in the Valle de la Marne. The vines grow in mineral-rich clay, limestone, and chalk soils that retain the day's heat through cool nights, promoting ripeness in the fruit and richness in the wine. This wine consistently highlights the unique character of the terroir rather than the qualities of a particular year, and is somewhat unusual as the product of a region best known for Champagne dominated by Pinot Noir.

Grapes are always harvested by hand and vinified by vineyard parcel in small tanks. Following secondary fermentation, the wine aged on lees in bottle for three years prior to disgorging.

The house of Gaston Chiquet is the original grower producer in the Champagne region. They blazed a trail for many producers to abandon selling fruit to make their own top quality releases.

Nicolas Chiquet farms 23 hectares in the Valle de la Marne in the villages of Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers and Mareuil-sur-Ay. All of the fruit (including that which is used in the non-vintage cuvee) comes from premier and grand cru grapes. Nicolas does not employ any oak aging at Gaston Chiquet; he believes that concentration, fruit maturity and malolactic fermentation impart enough body and texture to make aging in barrel unnecessary.

Champagne is possibly the most recognized regional "brand" in wine. Famous for its traditional method sparking wine, the standard accompaniment to any celebration. The chalky soils and rich history make Champagne and unparalleled region for sparkling wine.
