Étienne Calsac's Les Rocheforts is the result of an excellent expression of the Bisseuil terroir, belonging to the Premier Cru Côte des Blancs, with 100% Chardonnay coming from a single parcel (Lieu-Dit) of approximately 30 years. The 2020 harvest base, enriched with 30% vin de réserve, undergoes the first fermentation in steel and then continues with a 24-month stay on its yeasts. A touch of refinement is given by the Extra Brut dosage (2 q/l) in this Champagne Blanc de Blancs produced in limited quantities.

In 2010, Étienne took over responsibility for the family domaine at the age of 26. The estate, spread over 2.8 hectares of 30-year-old vineyards spread across Avize, Grauves and Bisseuil, is managed with the aim of ensuring that all vineyards are cultivated with the Lutte raisonnée method. Étienne personally supervises the pressing of the grapes, ensuring they are blended carefully, and adds his personal touch to the stringent quality controls already in place. Each bottle rests on the yeasts for a period of 36 months and a further 3 months after disgorgement. Its oenological potential is practically unlimited, in stark contrast to the limited production of its Champagnes, which are objects of great research and highly sought after.
