Regi – Ambonnay
After training as a sommelier, Christophe Regi honed his expertise working with famous Michelinstarred chefs like Alain Ducasse at the Louis XV in Monaco and Yves Thuriés at Cordes-sur-ciel. With 25 years’ experience in the world of wine and champagne, he decided to go out on his own and create his signature brand of Champagne. The origin of Christophe Regi’s grapes is paramount. They come from Ambonnay, Aÿ, Bouzy on the Montagne de Reims and Avize, Cramant, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-oger in the Côte des Blancs. The extended sur lie aging process of five years minimum for the Brut and seven years for the Ultra Brut infuses them with a range of exceptional aromas – white flowers, stone fruits and toasted hues – making Regi Champagnes wines of character.

With its dried fruit, candied ginger, orange zest and grapefruit, this Champagne gradually reveals a beautifully complex aroma.
