Champagne, France

A family history, a passion shared by brothers, values passed on to new generations: Champagne Hure Freres has been a family-run business for over 50 years. Raoul Hure and his two sons, Francois and Pierre value the mosaic of unique terroirs. Champagne, in every village, every hill, every plot, offer different aromatic profiles that are respected and enhanced. The desire to preserve the uniqueness of the terroirs is during vinification. By selecting the best potential of grapes to develop complex and elegant champagnes: living reflections of theland from which they come.

"It may be cliché to say that a grower’s wines resemble the grower him or herself, but in the case of the champagnes of François Huré, the saying really holds true. Immediately shy and discrete, the man slowly and carefully begins to reveal his sincerity, intellectual nature, and contagious energy over the course of a conversation, glass or meal together. The same can be said of his cuvée Mémoire, a rare blend of 30 vintages conserved by the solera method since 1982. Delicate aromas and a soft attack lead into a mid-palate full of energy and structure, finishing with endless length and class. Needless to say, both the wine and the man marked our mémoires."
