Product Description:

"100% Chardonnay grapes are used for this cuvée. This is from one of the very few Champagne producers who make a cuvée using the solera method. Bernard Dumont has dedicated one stainless steel tank to the project that was first filled in 1991. He works exclusively with chardonnay for this cuvée and has been adding to the tank every year, making it at present, a blend of approximately 20 vintages. This solera system produced its first release in 2010. One of the most striking features of this champagne is the different effect created by producing a champagne from aged wine (the aging occurs after the first fermentation) followed by the typical duration of two years “sur lattes” as contrasted with a champagne produced from relatively young wines which are aged for a long time after the secondary fermentation and thus remain in contact with the lees “sur lattes” for an extended period. The dosage is 6 grams. Production is about 400 cases annually. Main soil types: Kimmeridgian limestone and Portlandian soil. All parcels are vinified separately to preserve their individual aromas. The grapes are pressed in modern and precise, horizontal Coquard presses. Fermentation and malolactic take place in thermo-regulated, neutral stainless steel tanks. ‘Lutte raisonnée’ is applied, limiting chemical treatment to a minimum. Sustainable" -Importer
