This is the same wine as the Grains des Celles with the addition of 10% pinot noir red wine. Its blend of 55% pinot noir (including 10% Coteaux Champenois Rouge), 22.5% chardonnay and 22.5% pinot blanc. Extra-brut dosage of 3-4 g/L with 30 months on lees
Creamy and supple in style with plenty of soft red fruit and the kind of moreish texture to keep you coming back. Think Provencal Rosé with the addition of a secondary ferment and you are in that same, dry, mineral and satisfying league.
This is one of the forgotten grape varietals that the new young guns of champagne have started replanting and experimenting with. Pinot Blanc was one of the original varieties used in champagne and is particularly aromatic and lifted.
All of the fruit from this stellar house is sourced from the the South of Champagne in the Cotes des Bar which is rich in Kimmeridgian clay and adds a different spin on the aromatic profile compared to the northern regions of Champagne. The base year is 2014 which was an exceptional year.
