A Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut produced from two parcels of Pinot Noir. The first in Cuchery, ‘L’Olivière,’ planted in 1990, and the other in Châtillon-sur-Marne, 'La Fontinette,' planted 1998, both pruned with a combination of Cordon and Taille Chablis methods. A single vintage wine produced in tiny quantities, just 1500 bottles a year. We are delighted to get an allocation of this and the Blanc de Terroirs each year given such small volumes. As per usual, vinification in small stainless tanks, full malolactic conversion and bottled with 5 gm dosage.

A mineral, savoury edged and fruit driven wine with hints of blackberry, strawberry, plum, salinity and spice. Medium bodied, very fine, more precise than the Blanc de Terroir, intense, brooding and long, finishing tart and with a touch of grip. Banging!

Gently tanned gold in the glass with a savoury and saline nose of dried strawberry, tomato consommé, nori and prosciutto wrapped rockmelon. In the mouth its dry, finely textured by a delicate bead and concentrated with a burst of rhubarb, nectarine, tart plum, redcurrant and red apple skins that have toasty and savoury layers of complexity. It’s stretches long and ends with a chalky minerality that hums with iron flavour.
