Champagne Vouette et Sorbee - Fidele NV (Magnum!)
Region: Cote des Bar / Champagne
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Champagne Madness: Blanc de Noirs. Brut Nature. Base 2018, Disgorged 21 Jan 2021
So easy drink and delicious at that. Medium bodied with lower fizz than your average Champagne. Very vinous in style. Notes of red apple, cherry, kitchen herbs and spice. Fresh and chalky on the palate. An excellent wine.
This wine is roughly 95% from 2018, with a small amount of reserve wine sourced from a perpetual blend kept inside a massive old foudre.
Pressed in a traditional, vertical Coquard press to old oak for primary fermented and elevage for 10 months. The wine spends 15 months in bottle for secondary before being disgorged without dosage.
1.5 Liter Magnum
