AOC Champagne 'Seconde Nature' (SN19)


Regular price $190 750ml Sale

45% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier. All from the 2019 harvest (selection of the first juices only), all Premier Cru fruit from Chamery. There are 3 lieu-dits that face south-east: Les Vigneules, Les Spectres and Les Caquerets. The soils are of calcareous clay studded with limestone pebbles. The subsoils are of sand with a high percentage of tiny fossils. The grapes are pressed, and fermentation occurs naturally. The wine spent 9 months on lees in used 228L and 400L barrels, and malolactic occurs. The wine is then bottled without fining or filtration, and without sulfites. Disgorged in March 2022, without any dosage. 12% alc.

The SN18 is fleshy, and shows the year nicely without being too flamboyant. Nose of sweet fruit and white florals, with that typical saline edge. Yellow and green apple flesh, raw almonds, salts and seashells. The palate displays much of the same. It has a luxurious and loose-knit feel in the mouth, with fine bubbles that flow with ease. Relaxed, rather than racy. Beautiful balance between generosity, acidity and overall length.
