Vinification: This is an extremely limited brut nature blanc de noirs (266 bottles) from Vadin-Plateau’s Bois de Jots plot in the premier cru village Cumières. The wine is aged for four years on the lees in bottle. For this cuvee, the bottles are stored with natural cork instead of crown cap, thus enabling a more intensive approach. Malolactic fermentation occurs. Wine is neither fined nor filtered. There is zero dosage.
Tasting Notes: This champagne is a pure expression of Pinot Noir and the minerality of the soil. The nose is mature and complex with faintly oxidative notes. In contrast, the palate is fresh with hints of red fruit and slightly bitter. Extremely pleasurable, serve this wine as an aperitif or with white fish and butter sauce.
