- Biodynamic, organic producer carving out textural and powerful wines
- Made using a rare co-fermentation method which creates a luscious texture
- When pairing with a wine of this power, vinosity and energy, you can play in many different arenas of flavour. We love Mexican and think that this could handle a Chicken Mole Poblano with Green Coriander rice.
We are proud to have this wine in our midst. What does it mean to co-ferment?
Don't champagne producers do that anyway? Well, the answer is no. Most producers keep every parcel separate and here we see Erick De Sousa, showing his character and fermenting both chardonnay and pinot noir (50:50) to create something truly unique.
He also ferments the wine in a mixture of stainless steel and oak. The only other producer we know that does this is Geoffroy with his 'Blanc de Rose' (also on Emperor).
The style is ripe, spicy and powerful yet mineral and fresh with many layers waiting to reveal a vinous and yellow fruit driven appeal that we cannot get enough of. This is most certainly a wine before it is a champagne and so give it time in the glass. The dialogue will be rewarding!
