The estate was founded in 1951 by Henri Nicolo at the Manoir d'Arsonval, in the south of the Champagne region. Since then, the house has kept the family heritage and the requirements on the quality of the wines produced.
In 2011, David Nicolo took over the family business after studying viticulture and oenology. His goal is obviously to perpetuate the family values and to offer wines with character. In addition, David enlarged the domain and acquired the vineyard of Champagne Camille Paradis et Fils. Here we see the foundation 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, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier are used to ensure the balance of the blends. In addition, a final grape variety, Blanc Vrai, is also used to make Cuvée Excellence.
The vines are grown on ancient south-facing soils, offering in its entirety the terroir of the Côte des Bar: marl and clay-limestone soils.
In the South of Champagne, the domain benefits from a milder climate than the rest of the region. Coupled with the typicity of the soils, this climate gives different flavors despite the similar grape variety.
The wines produced by the estate are Champagnes of character, with a unique style recognizable among its peers.
The Tradition Brut cuvée is the most emblematic of the estate. Its nose of citrus fruits announces a long and intense mouth with notes of nuts. Its color is a yellow gold, very elegant.
The Cuvée Rosé stands out from the other cuvées of the estate by its intense aromas of red fruits. Perfect with fruit desserts or cakes, it will bring a touch of freshness to your meal.
The 2014 vintage Champagne cuvée has been awarded 3 stars by the Guide Hachette. Its very rich and complex nose offers notes of bread citrus, hazelnut and almond. It will be perfect with an aperitif or an exceptional meal.
