Top organic/biodynamic and natural champagnes

Chilly, humid Champagne should be a challenge for organic growers. Before Anselme Selosse of Champagne Jacques Selosse or Champagne Fleury proved them wrong, it was even said that it couldn’t be done. The climate was too risky, and a grower could lose an entire crop to mildew. However, the region is now an excellent example of organic/biodynamic and ”natural” winemakers producing more interesting wines than the standard. Here is a list of champagnes with personality, class and good price/performance (though not all by any means cheap!). They are not the only ones, however, and I encourage you to ask your retailer for other suggestions in the category!

6. Champagne Dehours Lieux-Dit Maisoncelle

« Prev Next » 6 of 7

Is Jerome Dehours the new Anselme Selosse? He makes interesting single vineyard champagnes from primarily Pinot Meunier, runs a Solera, pushes boundaries and is overall quite a stylish grower. His approach is minimal dosage and he takes a "terroirist" approach to showing how different spots provide different wines.
