We were so lucky being in Champagne area during the busy harvest season. We rented a car and hopped on over to different small villages such as Avize, Ay and Cramant. Pretty enjoying spent a day walking around in the breezy warm days with the epic scenery in front of you. Hundred of labours were working hard against the clock to harvest the grapes within the time frame according to the “rules” set by Union des Maisons de Champagne (UMC). One of the workers in a Jamaican hairstyle was very kind, let us try the hand-picked Chardonnay grapes in fresh. The taste of honey sweetness grape juice with a dose of minerality is unforgetable. We are pretty sure, the grapes coming from this field could make a top quality zero dosage champagne.
