Brut

$109.95

The ‘Goustan’ Blanc de Noirs is a savoury, textured champagne with lively fruit. While technically labelled as a non-vintage wine, all of the Pinot Noir fruit used for this wine is from the 2017 vintage. Tart red fruits like raspberry and sour cherry balance with salty minerality to produce a complex yet easy-drinking champagne.

100% pinot noir, no filtration, no fining, all from the 2017 harvest, aged in barrel for 6 months on lees before bottling. Aged for a further 19 months and disgorged with zero dosage and no sulphur. Certified organic.

Based in the southern-most subzone of the Champagne region, closer to the centre of Chablis than to the town of Reims, the soils are pure kimmeridgian and portlandian limestone. Valérie’s wines are barrel fermented on lees. A natural primary fermentation occurs, followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Her vineyards are 93% pinot noir and 7% chardonnay and have been certified organic since 2003.
