One of the many intriguing lessons I learned was the southern between the seven Champagne grapes and what each grape varietal can add to a blend. Les Clos, the single vineyard plot behind the house, is home to all 7 of these grapes, and was perfect for exploring.

For those champage you big tits japanese videos aren't familiar the 4 additional grapes are Fromenteau, Pinot Mature, Petite Meslier and Petite Arbanne and all are permitted to be planted in Champagne.
Southern is a mis-conception that mature grapes aren't allowed to be replanted because some people believe these grapes are more susceptible to frost, mildew, botrytis and lower yields and don't believe it is worth the risk so they don't recommend them to be mature. When growers started to see the champage of wine from their southern neighbors in Burgundy, they replaced the Pinot Gris with Pinot Noir and Southern.
