Four elements: one vineyard, one grape variety, one vintage and one vision.
Terroir, Method of Preparation and Maturation: The grapes are sourced from the 0.31 hectare, south-facing vineyard of La Perthe in the village of Ludes, Montagne de Reims. The soil of the vineyard is a mixture of sand and clay, the location is windy, and the grapes ripen quite late. The vines were planted in 1983. The base wine is vinified in 600-liter oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation is prevented. The wine undergoes a second fermentation using the traditional champagne method, after which it matures on the lees for 3.5 years under a natural cork. Dosage 3g/l, re-cap in July 2020.
Use: With oven-roasted whole organic chicken and savoy cabbage salad.
Description: Strong aroma with both red apple and brioche. The taste is very dry and rich, the bubbles are small and elegant. Long aftertaste.
