- A limited release
- Dry champagne - Extra-brut style (low dosage)
- Chardonnay dominant (90%)
Citrus, mineral-plasticine nose, fresh coconut, fresh almond with slight herbal edge to it. A lively, tangy palate leading into minerals that etch themselves onto the tongue.
Chardonnay is in full effect from the Villers Marmery region, showing some rusticity, scrumpy cider-like tones with earthy chewiness and great expression of terroir.
The finish is long and juicy and after 5-10 minutes being open the palate softens some more, opening up to some creaminess and real elegant texture.
This is a real charmer of a wine, you have been warned.
Being 100% reserve wine, this has been sourced from a solera going back to 2002 with every vintage since then added to it. It is essentially a multi-vintage wine similar to that of how the Grande Cuvée from Krug or the Grand Siècle from Laurent-Perrier are made, the difference being that this is almost exclusively from one village - Villers-Marmery as opposed to multiple.
Extra Brut at 4 g/l dosage, unfiltered, unfined and farmed using sustainable practices. 90% Chardonnay with 10% Pinot noir.
