Grape: Meunier, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
This wine offers the best of three worlds: it consists of 1/3 Meunier, 1/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay. While Christophe is an expert on getting the very best of each of these grapes separately, the 3 Cépages proves that these three make up some of the best classic Champagne blends for a reason. Elegant and powerful, and creamy and fresh all at the same time. This wine is floral, with some subtle bitterness and interesting iodine notes.
"The NV (2015) Brut Nature 3 Cépages ADN de Foudre is a blend of Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Bright and energetic, with terrific freshness from the Chardonnay, the ADN de Foudre is super distinctive and nuanced. Lemon peel, white flowers, almond and mint lend brightness. This is a stellar 2015 that does not show the vegetal notes so typical of the year. No dosage. Disgorged: August, 2021."
