Timothée Stroebel Triptyque '14

Brut 2014

$126.95

- A blend of all three varieties and several vintages 

- Organically made using grapes grown on Timothée's estate in Villers-Allerand

- Pair with roast pork and apple sauce

A blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay from three single vineyards from this young star of Montagne de Reims. Delicate, mineral and complex, a unique champagne of real finesse.

"This mini grower is based in Villers Allerand in the Montagne de Reims. Minimal intervention, oxidative style with low production. Just 5,993 bottles of this cuvée which is a blend of Pinot, Meunier, Chardonnay from the 11, 13 and 14 vintages.

Copper tinged. Soft at first with intense salinity and lime on the palate. Develops to be softly vinous and muscular with oxidative elements and toasted almonds. Bubbles dissipate quickly. This feels very complete after 2 hours in the glass. Drink 2019-2025." - Carlo_on_Wine

Please be aware that these wines are incredibly limited and Timothée's total production is around 12,000 bottles. Buying this wine supports him and the grower champagne community.

 

Champagne, despite its lofty reputation, has borne the brunt of chemical farming, perhaps more so than any other French wine region. It’s thanks to an increasing handful of growers like Timothée that the soils here are beginning to slowly recover from decades of chemical abuse. They are leading the way, and others are beginning to follow, a little like a positive version of a vinous Pied Piper. The ecosystem doesn’t die; instead it strengthens and flourishes.⁣ Timothée achieved his organic certification in 2014 after over a decade's work to regenerate his soils. He works almost without machines, instead working his soils by horse and plough with his own two horses, Bijou and Quina. All his vineyard work is carried out with the goal of promoting soil health; in order to boost the vineyards’ ecosystem and attract insects and birds.
