- 100% Chardonnay coming from a single vineyard of 1.2 hectares called 'La Tuilerie'
- Single Vineyard. Single Variety. Single Year
- Zero dosage. Barrel-fermented. Biodynamic.
Lemon sherbet on the nose with some chalkiness coming through. The palate is super fresh with a saline-juiciness that makes your mouth water.
It has a long acid line leading into grapefruit, lemon verbena and the mousse is soft on the tongue.
What a gorgeous expression of 'parcellaire' - single-vineyard style champagne.
Technical notes: Disgorged: June 2017 | Dosage: 2 g/l | Base year harvest: 2014 | Aged under cork "La Tuilerie vineyard lies in the middle of the slope in Vandières, where there’s calcareous sand over a layer of gritstone (pierre meulière), which itself lies above the hard white marl on the right. Flavien's 2014 is terrific, full of energy and vitality, and its expression is much more one of soil than of grape variety." - Peter Liem.
