Val'Frison, Champagne, Brut Nature, Cuvée P
75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay. 100% indigenous yeasts.
From one small plot of vines complantés, meaning that the grapes are harvested and pressed together on the same date. This requires a balancing act on the part of the vigneron(ne), who must weigh the pros and cons of harvesting for ripeness, acidity and overall balance as these two varietals normally ripen a few days apart. The soil here is predominantly chalky bedrock with only minor amounts of clay on the surface.
Slight toasty notes and citrus are present in the nose which lead into a wine with good richness but laser-like precision. High acidity and no dosage make for a vinous texture and great length.
