The Piu Belle Champagne is a blend of 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir. The vineyard is located in the most beautiful part of the Champagne region: DO Ay, France. Champagne The 2009 La Piu Belle Champagne vintage is brimming with energy: it is a very remarkable Cuvée, of extreme finesse carried by a Chardonnay-led freshness combined with the delicious maturity of a twelve-year aging in the chalk cellars. 2009 was a special (top) year for Champagne. The winter allowed the vineyard to rest well, followed by a very sunny and dry spring in Champagne and this trend continued throughout the summer until the harvest. The harvested grapes were smaller than normal but with a much higher concentration of aromas. The previously harvested Chardonnays retained a nice freshness and a precise minerality. While the Pinot Noirs, ripe and very concentrated, give the blend complexity and richness. In summary, the combined effect of the generous nature and the unique plots with only top fruit contributed to the creation of this exceptional Cuvée.

This 2009 Vintage Piu Belle Champagne comes from the best Crus in the Côte de Blancs and is characterized by remarkable freshness and seductive aromas, thanks to twelve priceless years of aging on its yeasts in the beautiful chalk cellars. The Piu Belle Champagne has a bright golden color and has fantastic fine bubbles that you hardly see but so beautifully support the complex and elegant bouquet of citrus, quince, mirabelle plum and hazelnuts. The beautiful minerality is one that you rarely see and makes it clear that this is a Champagne from the Premier League. On the palate, the 2009 has pure allure, with a perfect balance translated into freshness and fruit, roundness and a long, lingering finish. Again supported by a beautiful perlage that gives it an almost creamy feel. The wine is a very dry BRUT with a dosage of 5 g/L

About Vina Vik Winery

In 2004, Alex and Carrie Vik started an entire team with the audacious goal of making one of the best wines in the world. After a two-year search, the best terroir was found in Chile's Millahue Valley. Millahue Valley means "Place of Gold". The vineyard is planted in the interior of the valley, offering a variety of terroirs and small microclimates cooled by the coastal breeze. The vineyards consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah.

The winery was designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic in collaboration with Alex and Carrie Vik. It has been carefully designed to have minimal impact on the landscape. A state-of-the-art, highly durable, technologically creative and visually stunning experience. The winery was completed in 2014. Under the leadership of the Chilean Patrick Valette (wine consultant, Château Pavie and with French roots) and the current winemaker Cristián Vallejo involved in the project from the start, a beautiful company has been set up since 2005. We work very sustainably, harvesting is completely manual and fermentation takes place naturally without added yeasts.

Today, VIK produces four exceptional red wines and a rosé and has secretly owned a plot in Champagne for years, of which the first release of the 2009 Champagne Piu Belle will be released at the end of 2022. They are justifiably very proud that VIK, La Piu Belle, Milla Cala and "A" have received ratings well into the 90's such as 99 points from James Suckling, a Master Medal from The Drink Business and Platinum and Gold Medals of the Decanter, along with many other awards.

A mirror of water in the wine cellar cools the barrel cellar without consuming energy. The translucent roof makes it possible to work during the day without artificial light. Inspired by the purity of our wines, we have developed the concept of "Barroir". We roast used and new French barrels with oak from our hills and build our own barrels in our cooperage. These barrels made by the estate embody the taste of the terroir. Because they approach all work holistically, they only use fallen hundred-year-old trees that can be found on the immense estate. In 2019, Wine Enthusiast Magazine unveiled their 20th Annual Wine Star Awards and named VIK the Wine Star for 'Best Winery Experience'. In 2021, the competition ranked VIK as 8th prestigious winery among the 50 World's Best Vineyards and iViña Vik has therefore very quickly joined the icon wines from Chile and is now also among the global top.
