Champagne Vouette et Sorbee - Blanc d'Argile NV

$200.00

Region: Cote des Bar / Champagne

Grapes: Chardonnay

Champagne Madness: Disgorged 21/03/20 Blanc de Blancs, Brut Nature

It's a super mineral, nutty wine with crunchy stone fruits. There is lovely, pulpy fruit but also racy, crunchy acidity and terrific length with a twist of pleasant astringency. It takes you (the 60 miles) to grand cru Chablis and back again

 

NERD NOTES

Within the cold, west-facing Biaunes lieu-dit there is a small parcel of Chardonnay (the Côtes des Bar is overwhelmingly planted to Pinot Noir) that Gautherot planted wild, without preparing the soils, amongst the native vegetation. Established in 2000, with massale cuttings from Anselme Selosse and from Dauvissat's Valmur grand cru vineyard, this portion of the vineyard is now the origin of what Antonio Galloni calls "one of the most beautiful and distinctive wines in Champagne.

Fermented in mainly old oak with a portion going to Georgian amphora. The wine spends 15 month on lees after secondary ferment in bottle before being had disgorged with no dosage.
