Located on the northern edge of the Montagne de Reims in the Grand Cru village, Verzenay, Sebastien Mouzon is the latest in a unbroken family of winemakers stretching back to the 1770s.  


On taking over in 2008, Sebastien started biodynamic conversion, and more significantly he is one of the pioneers of integrating agroforestry into his vineyards; planting more than 700 trees and 300 aromatic shrubs in amongst the vines.  Sheep and chickens are used for winter grazing of the grass, with horses used for ploughing in summer.  Seb has also built bat and bird nests/roosts across his vineyards to encourage natural predation of unwanted pests as opposed to reverting to the regoinal norm of spraying pesticides. 


In the cellar all primary ferments are completes by the natural yeast of the grapes in a pied de cuve.  The still wines are then aged in 3-15 year old barrels on the full lees for 7-24 months.  Secondary fermentation is sparked with the addition of biodynamic champagne yeast supplied by Fleury, achieving a gentler pressure to the fizz of 5 bar rather than the usual 6. 


L'Atavique is a blend of the 3 parcels held on the 3 hills of Verzy.  A blend of the 2018, 17 and 16 vintages it has a pale bright gold colour, lifted fruit notes and a good salinity balanced by the 2.5g/l dosage.  A real crowd-pleaser for the party season.
