- +

Region: France | Champagne | Champagne
Bottle Size: 750ml
Grape: Pinot Noir

100% Pinot Noir. 

This unique wine is made from a plot of ungrafted Pinot Noir vines. Nicolas’ father noticed that the grafted vines were not thriving as much as the ungrafted vines so in 1973 he replanted the plot with Pinot Noir on their own roots. This can only be achieved because the soil in this particular plot does not have phylloxera. The grapes come from 1er cru vineyards in Ecueil and it is 100% Pinot Noir. The vines were planted in 1973 and are almost 50 years old. The wine is fermented in barrel and has zero dosage.
