Hubert Soreau is part of the single vintage, single parcel, single barrel handful of growers that are currently taking such an approach currently utilised by a handful of growers in the region.
Hubert was born in the far north close to the Belgium border. His family moved to Champagne, in a house across from Le Clos l’Abbé, where the site essentially served as his back yard. Hubert's parents were able to purchase a small parcel in 1993 and Hubert added to that original holding with another purchase in 2003. He never uses pesticides or herbicides and he picks late in the season with an average ripeness of 11° Baumé. Fermentation takes place in both used barriques and neutral 300L Hautvillers oak barrels and is finished with minimal dosage.
