The Sève Blanc de Noirs is produced on the principle of "one grape variety, one vineyard plot, one year". A superb, powerful and mineral Champagne. More info

The Sève range is quite developed at Domaine Olivier Horiot, since this was a still wine before a Champagne. Indeed, Riceys is he only Champagne village where three different appellations coexist, two of which produce still wines: Coteaux Champenois and Rosé de Riceys. The idea behind this range is simple: “one grape variety, one parcel, one vintage”, thus making it a parcel-by-parcel project that champions the individuality of the terroir. This 100% Pinot Noir is a clean, powerful champagne, opening out against a background of acidity providing the perfect balance. This cuvée is produced as Brut Nature (non-dosed). Pair this champagne with seafood or a dessert like cherry clafoutis.

Blanc de Noirs Sève Brut Nature Olivier Horiot serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Clafoutis aux cerises, Bar en croûte de sel, Langoustines juste grillées.

    Information about domain Olivier Horiot

    Located in Les Riceys, the Olivier Horiot domain has belonged to the same family for several generations. The villages that makes up Les Riceys have a tumultuous past (in its long history, it has been defined and redefined as both Burgundy and Champagne) yet Olivier Horiot has succeeded in producing innovative and unusual wines from biodynamic viticulture and natural processes. Les Riceys is in fact the only village in the Champagne region permitted to produce both non-sparkling (red and white Côteaux Champenois as well as rosé) and sparkling wines. Since 1999, Olivier Horiot has made it his mission to bring back the region’s seven indigenous grape varieties, producing cuvées coveted by both beginners and seasoned enthusiasts. Olivier Horiot has been a revelation in the Champagne region in recent years. His family has lived in Les Riceys in the heart of the Côte des Bar part of Champagne for generations. Furthering its uniqueness, Les Riceys is the only one in Champagne to boast three appellations. One of these is Champagne, of course, but there are also two non-sparkling wine appellations: Côteaux Champenois (red and white) and Rosé des Riceys. The latter is an astonishing and aromatic rosé. Its appeal may be narrow, but the talent Olivier Horiot has ensured it is perfectly crafted. Horiot farms 8.5 hectares in the commune of Les Riceys. The majority is planted with Pinot Noir (classic variety for Aube), but he also grows Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier and Arbane, an old, traditional variety that is increasingly popular with "specialised" winegrowers. Olivier Horiot has taken over new vineyard parcels (through family or acquisition) and since 2013, the vineyard has had official organic and biodynamic accreditation (Biodyvin). Olivier Horiot has also built and fitted out a brand-new cellar, providing the best possible conditions for wine production where the grapes can reach their full potential. Possibly inspired by nearby Burgundy, the domain is increasingly separating out its different terroirs into distinct cuvées. The result is superb champagnes with a strong personality that stand out from the often more anonymous blended champagnes.
