CH Piconnet ' 3 Cepages' '16

Vintage 2016

$109.95

- A blend including Pinot Blanc which is one of the 'forgotten varietals'

- This a gorgeous, earthy, mineral wine with bright aromas and juicy palate

- Pair with baked fish, lemon, herbs and shaved radish

Perfect, tiny bubbles rise to the surface with a golden-pinkish hue. Aromas of white flowers, musk, orange peel and wet stone are present. The stony dimension leads on to the palate with lean, dry snap and then a mouth-watering gush of grapefruit and lemon peel, edge from the outside of the palate, in.

The mousse is fine and delicate which makes this easy to drink. Being a zero dosage champagne, this has a direct impression of the clay-limestone soils in which this is made. We love the purity, expression and elegance of this unusual trio.

Technical details:

All coming from the 2016 harvest. 40% Pinot noir, 35% Pinot Blanc and 25% Chardonnay. Disgorged in January 2021. Dosage is Zero. Only 3515 bottles made.

This is a 6-hectare domain that was taken over by husband and wife team, Clément and Agathe in 2014. They inherited the land from Clément’s forefathers and reference this in the name. The ‘C’ stands for Charles, the grandfather of the estate who owned the land, and the ‘H’ represents Hubert the father who cultivated the parcels and renewed the vineyard site with stakes and trellising. This took many years, however reduced costs and achieved the best result. Today the estate is managed naturally and all the vineyards are recognised as ‘Haute Valeur Environnementale’ as well as ‘Viticulture Durable en Champagne’

Baked fish with lemon, herbs and served with freshly shaved radish. Some earthy baked potatoes wouldn’t go amiss
