Almost a green tinge to the colour. A fine bead and tiny bubbles. The nose has a distinct salty-saline note with ripe lemon and citrus peel. After a few minutes in the glass, this opens up to feijoa, ginger and green pear. The palate is so pure, fresh and transparent. The sandy soils of Ecueil and Sacy are on show and it's hard to believe that this is mostly pinot noir. What an excellent example from Gaspard, a young talent that is a one to watch.

Technical details

The grapes are harvested at their high ripeness so as not to add sugar to the fermentation. All vinification takes place in 228 litre "fût de Chêne", fermentation is spontaneously triggered by the yeasts present in the must (indigenous yeasts) and the second fermentation (malolactic) is not sought, yet controlled at cold temperatures to give the wine freshness and vivacity.

Vincent Brochet is an Artisan Vigneron and is an heir to a history of winemakers that began in 1721 in the village of Ecueil, classified as Premier Cru in the Montagne de Reims. Currently, the property of Domaine Les Croix covers 14 parcels and is home to the 3 traditional vines distributed in 3 different villages classified as Premier Cru: Ecueil, Villers-aux-Nœuds and Sacy.

Persian Style Crispy rice (with yoghurt) add some chargrilled chicken and steamed green beans.
