This is one very special Champagne and we are thrilled to have an allocation of this rare gem! Exquisite house Ulysse Collin produces 'Les Maillons' which is bound to become the hot topic of your next dinner party.
This is a superb Pinot terroir and can ripen the grapes to north of 12% potential alcohol easily—something very rare in Champagne. The current release includes a significantly higher portion of reserve wine than previously, (and is all the better for it!), and was aged in three to 6-year-old barrels (including some foudres) for the first seven months of its life. Disgorged with only 2.4 grams. This a gloriously perfumed, red-fruited wine with wonderful purity and mineral energy.
This has the 2016 base wine, disgorged late 2020. The beautifully textured and perfumed Blanc de Noirs comes from a site called Les Maillons in Barbonne-Fayel, near the town of Sézanne (in the Côte de Sézanne). From the 'Les Maillons’ 6 hectares, Collin farms 2.5 hectares and is the only grower to work the soil here.
Make sure you grab this while you can, strictly limited stocks available.
