A SINGLE VINEYARD CHAMPAGNE
Single Vineyard « La Côte à Bras »
Cumières Premier Cru Vintage 2010
A quiet autumn peacefully guided the vines towards the winter break. January experienced very cool temperatures that continued until March.
Flowering was delayed due to some cool nights in June. After that the heat
arrived and the month of July ended with some violent storms. The grapes
had plenty of water but the September sun dried the soil. The late ripening
resulted in berries arriving at the press with very good sugar levels.
100% Pinot Noir from the single site called « La Côte à Bras » in the Premier Cru village of Cumieres.
Disgorging in small lots.
Aged for 7 years
0 gr/l – Brut Nature. Limited release.
The colour is a straw yellow gold.
The nose has aromas of candied fruits, which are delicate and very attractive, delivering some lovely notes of peach, quince and roasted almonds with tenderness and passion. With time fragrances of currant become apparent. On the palate there is plenty of attack yet the impression remains rich and rounded. There is great aromatic complexity, with flavours of mirabelle plum jam, and cooked white fruits. The finish is rich, inviting food, and with exceptional length.
