You might think you're familiar with the story of John the Baptist, but you probably don't know the truth. When Herod's daughter demanded John's head on a salver after dancing for her father - he being pleased enough to offer anything she wanted in return - Herod was horrified. 'Why on a plate?' he thought.


Fearing his little girl wanted to consume the bonce, he had his chefs build a fake head. Pork and chicken skin. Quails eggs for eyes... surely the ruse would be obvious. However, the 'head' was served with a mesmerising champagne, the sheer distraction of which took the girl's attention from what was really on the plate. Interestingly, the bubbles went beautifully with the nibbles too.



The Josselin family established their vineyards in 1854 in the south of the Champagne region, on the exceptional lands of the Seine Valley. In 1980, Jean-Pierre took on the family business and continues to run the site with his wife, Véronique, and their children, Lucile and Jean-Félix. The Champagne house has been a member of Champagne's Regional Federation of Independent Winegrowers since 1992.


The family continuously work with a great respect for nature which fuels their strong desire to preserve their lands for the future generations of the business. Their champagnes are made with the drive to create elegant, well-balanced and lively wines that show the best quality of the fruit from which they are made. Recently certified 'Terra Vitis', the family ensure to use sustainable viticulture within the vineyards, avoiding the use of pesticides.


Made from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, this champagne cuvée shows a straw-yellow colour. The nose offeres fresh hints of acacia, quince and mint whilst the palate displays a freshness from the Chardonnay and and elegant, fruity quality with a lemony finish provided by the Pinot Noir.
