The Janisson house is located in Verzenay, classified Grand Cru village in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, on one of the most prestigious terroirs of Champagne. At its head, Manuel Janisson makes the winegrowing tradition of Janisson prosper, inscribing it in a contemporary and international dimension. Descending from a long line of wine-makers, Manuel Janisson is forward- thinking and resolutely passionate about developing and enriching the family tradition. In 2014, with the help of architect Giovanni Pace, he based his Champagne House in a sleek, modern cellar ; reflecting the style of his new cuvées. The state of the art winery ensures that new technology is put to good use to get the very best from what nature provides. Manuel Janisson skillfully combines tradition and modernity.
The Wine is clear and brilliant. A light “mango” colour with delicate effervescence and a discrete stream of bubbles. The initial bouquet reveals wild strawberries, followed by wild berries, tart, vanilla and then, at a deeper level, spices such as cinnamon and thyme. A distinct immediate mouthfeel directly followed by a creamy sensation which overwhelms the palate. Gentle sweetness like light cream with slightly tangy fruit aromas gives it a certain subtlety. The finish is explosive – litchis and redcurrants with a strawberry aftertaste.
