Champagne from a specific area from old vines of Chardonnay. Produced only in great years, this Champagne is made in very small quantities. A great white wine of Champagne even before becoming a Champagne. All grapes are from only old vines Premier Cru Ecueil and Grand Cru Bouzy, exposed on the south hills and different plots in the middle of the vineyard. Slow, gentle pressing using gravity flow techniques. Exclusively vinified in wooden vats and with regular battonage. Long maturation on wooden vats and no filtration before the bottling. Disgorged by hand. This is another intense, mineral driven wine by Nicolas Maillart. Subtle suggestions of smoke and pencil shavings add complexity to a focused core of Chardonnay fruit. The finish is pure and crystalline.
