Etienne Calsac 'Les Rocheforts'

Sale price

This is the third release of this single-vineyard champagne from Bisseuil, which in the past formed the base of Calsac’s Infiniment Blanc. Fifteen percent of the blend is reserve wine that is vinified and aged in oak, and this seems to contribute texture and body on the palate.

Etienne Calsac, definitely a young gun of champagne making pure, expressive champagne. He took over the family estate in 2008 and has converted to fully Biodynamic farming. He makes very small quantities of this about 3,500 bottles worldwide and owns a total of 2.8-odd hectares. He is also fortunate to have access to the monopole Clos des Maladries in Avize with extremely limited bottling. Interesting to know, Etienne's wines are extremely popular in Paris and have been listed at several Michelin-starred restaurant as well as the Ritz Hotel.

Base year: 2016, full malolactic conversion and 15% of the wine was aged in barrel for 7 months prior to secondary fermentation. 3051 bottles produced, disgorged May 2019. Predominantly chalk soils with southeast exposition. Ploughing done and grass cover provided.
