Vineyard Notes
100% Cumieres Premier Cru ,Vallee de la Marne- Single Vineyard Organic
Winemaking
100% Premier Cru Chardonnay, 100% Orgnic/Bio-Dynamic, Zero Dosage. Only natural yeasts have been used during the vinification process, malolatic fermentation, no finings or filtration was used at any stage in the wine making process. Dosage is 0gr/litre.
Tasting Notes
This is not your classic Blanc de Blanc style of Champagne. Being a single vineyard Champagne you can feel the weight and texture of this wonderful vineyard, the taste of the soil that the grapes were grown in are very evident. Subtle citrus notes, soft subtle vanilla aromats and the feel and texture of wood come through. This is a wonderful expression of a wine terroir. The fact that it is Zero Dosage means that this wine delivers a clean, direct and refreshing style of Chardonnay. even for non Chardonnay lovers this wine will change your mind.
Style
Subtle and driven by an mazing chalkiness, subtle citrus and bracing acidity, this is a developed wine that will be gretaly appreciated by those wine lovers who really love a more complex Champagne
Colour
Golden Pear.
Bouquet
Delicate, hints of citrus, white blossom and vanilla.
Palate
Delicate, fine yet still very enagaging & provocative.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
2016-2022
Food Matches
Give me some wonderful fresh Crayfish/Lobster, some wonderfull St Jacques/Scallops , some Barramundi or even a lovely piece of Berkshire Pork and this will work so well with this food types. Give me a salted caramel icecream a dark chocolate pudding and this Champagne will also be at equally home here. Another example of just how versatile the Chamapgnes of Vadin-Plateau are.
