The Champagnes of Ulysses Collin are among the most distinctive we are lucky enough to taste. From his cellars in Congy, located to the west of the Côte des Blancs, Olivier Collin produces serious, vinous, Champagnes of terroir. His "Les Maillons" bottling is one such wine. From 40+ year-old vines in Barbonne-Fayel in the Sézannais planted in soils of heavy clay and chalk and harvested at low yields "Les Maillons" is ripe, dense, rich, and complex. The 2011 edition contains 20% reserve wine from 2010.
