Champagne Infinite Eight is owned by Nicolas Le Tixerant and Frank Leroux. Nicolas comes from a long line of Champenois vignerons going back to the French Revolution and inherited from his grandmother the House of Edmond Roussin, which shut its doors in the 1970s. However, Nicolas was determined to revive his family’s important name and started replanting the 8.5 hectares of vineyards and resurrecting the business, teaming up with Frank Leroux to help with marketing. They only produce wines in the best vintage years and package them in sleek ‘black bottles marked with an 8 and the symbol for Infinity, synonyms for balance, symmetry, harmony and perfection’.
Most vintage Champagnes are aged on their lees about five years on average; however, this spent a whopping 10 years on its lees before being disgorged with a dosage of 8 grams per liter! The 2003 is a blend of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir from Infinite Eight's vineyards in the Marne Valley. Only a little more than 1,000 cases were produced.
