History of the domain
The domaine was founded in 1951 by Henri Nicolo at Manoir d'Arsonval, in the south of Champagne. Since then, the estate has maintained the family heritage and the high quality standards of the wines it produces.
In 2011, David Nicolo took over the family business after studying viticulture and oenology. His aim is obviously to perpetuate the family values and offer wines with character. David also enlarges the estate and acquires the vineyards of Champagne Camille Paradis et Fils. This marks the founding of Champagne Nicolo & Paradis.
The vineyard covers more than 17 hectares, on the Côte des Bar, in the Barsuraubois viticultural zone. The vines are mainly planted with Pinot Noir, with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier used to ensure balanced blends. A final grape variety, Blanc Vrai, is also used to make Cuvée Excellence.
The vines are grown on ancient south-facing soils, offering the full terroir of the Côte des Bar: marl and clay-limestone soils.
In the south of Champagne, the estate enjoys a milder climate than the rest of the region. Coupled with the typicality of the soils, this climate gives different flavors despite the similar grape variety.
The wines produced by the domaine are Champagnes of character, with a unique style recognizable among its peers.
The Tradition Brut cuvée is the estate's most emblematic. Its citrus nose heralds a long, intense palate with hints of walnut. Its color is an elegant yellow gold.
Cuvée Rosé stands out from the estate's other cuvées with its intense red fruit aromas. Perfect with fruit desserts or cakes, it will bring a touch of freshness to your meal.
The Champagne Millésimée 2014 cuvée has been awarded 3 stars by the Guide Hachette. Its very rich, complex nose offers notes of citrus bread, hazelnuts and almonds. It will be perfect as an aperitif or with an exceptional meal.
