Some like it rich and spicy! We love champagne that shows great expression and energy. This 100% Pinot noir is from a single vineyard site called 'Les Orizeaux' and displays all that oyster-shell like salinity, nervy citrus and overlaid with spice and vanilla.
This cuvée is full-bodied and flavourful yet it retains a high level of finesse.
Technical notes: 'Les Orizeaux' vineyard is sand over chalk bedrock and was planted in 1961. Older vines produce less fruit, yet with more concentration and intensity. Vinified and aged in oak barrels, it was disgorged in July 2017 and bottled with 3.5 g/l dosage.
