- Biodynamic champagne made from a top grower-producer in Bouzy
- Later-ripening style so lots of fruit yet plenty of freshness and minerality
- Pair with pork or mushroom terrine or prawn tempura with squid ink aioli.
This is a vivacious, energetic champagne that shows the power and ripeness of the fruit grown in its south facing vineyards.
Made entirely from pinot noir coming from Bouzy (80%) and the lesser known Tauxières-Mutry (20%).
Benoit has a deft hand in being able to retain freshness amongst this ripe fruit which provides a sophisticated elegance fervent poise. Its ample, dark berry-fruit aroma persists on the tongue, all pivoted by its chalky minerality.
100% pinot noir of which 80% is barrel fermented in 225 litre barriques. Vines planted in 1960, 1980 and 1990. Disgorged June 2018 with only 5g/L dosage. Total 8000 bottles made.
