- Biodynamic producer making finely crafted Grand Cru champagne from Verzy

- Solera wine is a richer style using more reserve wines to add complexity 

- Pair with a medley of foods from a charcuterie and cheese platter 

L’ascendant - a perfect name for this Solera which ascends every year in depth and complexity. From the same blend as the basic l’Atavique, but more richness and body. But still the same house style of linearity and crispness. 

All fruit sourced from their biodynamic vineyards in the Grand Cru of Verzy.  This a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, all aged in used French oak, unfined and unfiltered.  The solera blend is 50% from the 2014 vintage, 50% from the 2013-2010 "Solera de la cuvee L'Atavique". Dosage: 0 g/L Disgorged 01/2019 and only 6544 bottles produced.

 

Sébastien Mouzon, is a young man with a clear sense of vision for his domaine and his end Champagne. He received formal training and degrees in both oenology and viticulture, and spent a year working in Burgundy to gain greater depth of knowledge towards the use of oak for fermentation and maturation. In the vineyards, flowers and grass are allowed to grow between the vines and Sébastien has gone so far as to plant a cherry tree in the middle of one of his vineyard plots to promote biodiversity.

The pure mineral intensity and chalk drive would pair well with a medley of fine foods, charcuterie and cheese would be a great option
