A powerful nose with beautiful notes of red fruits - fresh strawberry, wild raspberry and Morello cherry, while keeping a vivid freshness and mineral dimension. The wine is rich and complex on the palate, combining vinosity and finesse. Ample volume in the mouth with that key brioche note then some mirabelle plum and apricot. The hallmark is the balance of this wine made in a warmer harvest and drinking really well now.
Technical details: “Les Plates Pierres” is a single vineyard plot (1.40 ha) in Venteuil and planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It is worked using sustainable viticulture with growing grass between the rows and working the soil under the row. It sits on limestone and clay soil and is always made as a vintage champagne with low dosage.
