VITICULTURE: Our work in the vineyards is guided by two principles: to respect all living things and to intervene a little as possible.
No fertiliser, removal of 60% of fruit-bearing buds, elimination of excess foliage to promote better aeration of the vines and, when needed, green harvesting.
Grapes picked at extreme maturity.
This wine is made with the help and advice of Yves CONFURON-COTETIDO. We only make our red Coteaux Champenois still wines in years when the grapes reach perfect pheniolic maturity and are in perfect condition.
Making this wine requires 20 days maceration of whole bunches:
- Selective picking of grapes at perfect maturity
- Aged in 228 litre oak barrels for 33 months
- No filtration, no fining
- Malolactic fermentation always carried out
- Ageing on lees
- Only 1113 bottles produced of the vintage currently on sale
- Available in 75cl bottles
From a single vineyard called Largillier; from a single varietal : Pinot Noir and from a single vintage.
For this wine we use only one plot: SUBSTANCE.
An appealing first impression on the nose with aromas of strawberry, red berries and a well-integrated suggestion of oak that is also found on the palate. A powerful, energetic wine with all the breadth expected of Pinot.
Bold on the attack (thanks to the clay in the KM2 soil); refreshing with marked minerality and a long finish (thanks to the limestone content of the KM2 soil).
