Are you into champagnes with body and richness?
The 'Audacious' Blanc de noirs from this producer has this in spades. Made with 100% pinot noir from the Côte des Bars has generous, fruit-forward flavours of cherry and orchard fruit, cooking spice and baked bread.
We love the intensity and character of this champagne and suggest cooking some food to go with it. The fruit is sourced from old vines called Sainte-Marie, planted in 1960 in a calcareous soil in Celles-sur-Ource. These are lower yielding and provide that intensity and persistence.
This is also a zero dosage which means there is no addition of sugar. Aurelien, doesn't use any sulphates in his production, he avoids any fining and filtration as well which results in a powerful and bold expression of pinot noir.
