100% from Bouzy Grand Cru; field blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Arbanne, Chasselas, Petit Meslier, Gros Plant, Teinturier and other varieties. The cuvée is named after the single parcel of the same name. The oldest vines were planted in 1923 by Benoît’s great grandfather. Until 2009, the wine made from this parcel was blended with wine from other parcels. After tasting it separately, Benoît recognized its unique character and decided to make a special cuvée from it. The 2016 vintage was aged for 10 months in 225l old barrels, then kept an extra 28 months in bottles before release. Bottled with zero dosage. Incredibly complex with notes of dried apricot, spice, candied ginger and even a hint of dark chocolate. Textured and fine, with chalky minerality, this multidimensional Champagne has stunning purity and balance. Drink now or watch it evolve over several years.
