Baron d’Avella Collection

« We make wines with a soul, expressing at its best the richness and the diversity of our localities. Reflecting its terroir and microclimate, each wine becomes unique, inimitable.

Searching for excellence in the vineyard and in the cellar, each cuvée is a unique act of creation.

Our collection  Soleris is inspired by the importance of sunlight, source of life and essential element for the vine growth. Les Jardins, on the other hand, reveal our parcels individuality thanks to plot by plot vinification. The collection Les Temps  reflects the fundamental role of time in the wines evolution.

Les Clos , the ultimate expression of the Baron d’Avella style, brings together the three founding elements of our philosophy: light, soil and time. Valuing a confidential production, each bottle of Baron d’Avella Champagne is numbered. »

Thibaut and Frédéric d’Avella

Soleris

Ode to Light

Without light nothing would be possible. The bright environment of the vine allows its growth and metabolism. This solar power is the true origin of a wine aromatic quality.  Soleris  and Soleris Rosé reveal the invisible and subtle link between solar energy and earth. The alliance of Light and a great Pinot Noir.
The steep slopes exposed south/south-east and the altitude of its multiple valleys, make the richness of Les Riceys unique land.

Soleris Rosé

Composed of a single year, solar cuvée by excellence, Soleris Rosé exalts the essence of grapes bathed in the light of summer. The sparkling fruit of the Pinot Noir from the historic Les Riceys hillsides is associated with the freshness brought by the clays of its soils. Its low dosage allows Soleris Rosé to express all its aromatic richness.

Les Temps

One Vintage, Three « Temps »

Exclusively vintaged, Baron d’Avella Les Temps is a quest for ideal: the ultimate expression of Pinot Noir and the singularity of a great year sublimated by the work of Time.
Indeed, Time is working with delicacy to make our champagnes both exceptional and with great aging potential.

It is in the darkness and almost monastic silence of our cellars that Time operates, through the slow maturation on the lees. Everything seems more than ever immobile, and yet, a dynamism operates meticulously in each Baron d’Avella bottle metamorphosing and magnifying it.

Every Baron d’Avella Temps reveals a special moment in the wine life. Developed in 3 acts of successive expressions, Les Temps collection offers unique sensory experiences.
