Grower Champagnes are intended to express terroir – the unique combination of characteristics of a particular vineyard or series of vineyards, and in particular soil and micro-climate. They allow the champagne lover to begin to understand the difference between a Chardonnay (blanc de blancs) from Avize and, say, one from Mesnil-sur-Oger, a pair of villages which are both grand cru appellations. To understand which part of which sub-region gives Pinot Noir a particularly pronounced minerality. To get to try a champagne made exclusively from Pinot Meunier.
