Nestled on the north bank of the Vallee de la Marne in the village of Vincelles is Piot Sevillano. Run by Christine and Vincet Scher-Sevillano, eighth generation wine growers, producing a simple, fruity wine that is a good representation of the area. With eight hectares under vine, they work predominantly with Meunier (75%) and the rest Chardonnay and Pinot noir (15% each). Their Tradition, Extra Brut and Rose have good balance and posses a very delicate mousse that makes for an enjoyable glass of Champagne. I have on a number of occasions been a little concerned with their Brut Prestige and Interdite which all seem to have a worrying oxiditative note that I just can’t get away from. Even with a vintage like 2008 I found notes of treacle, although there was the life giving acidity that you would expect. They choose to keep their sulphur contact to the bare minimum and I feel that this may well be the culprit. I will keep an eye on this as I try their wines in the future.
