What to expect


This is a blend of 66% pinot noir and 44% chardonnay all of which is sourced from grand cru vineyards. Pinot noir plays the lead here with wild strawberry, ripe raspberry and red delicious apple making first impressions. The palate is light with a refined mousse giving way to some earthy and nutty tones as it warms up in the mouth. This is a winemaker to watch.

Notes: Sulphur Free, Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly.

About the house

About the house


Food suggestion

Based in the grand cru village of Ambonnay, Benoit is fifth generation and one of the most exciting natural producers at the moment being certified organic and biodynamic. For example he is one of very few vineyards to plough only using 2 horses since 2010. He sources fruit from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Mailly and uses a very natural approach to fermentation using only wild yeasts. He is also sulphur free and uses small 225 litre oak barriques.

Food suggestion


The earthy tones of this cuvee would serve exceeding well with a mushroom and truffle linguini.
