Coteaux Champenois Rouge

Champagne

100% Pinot Noir. The fruit for this still red wine comes from a small estate parcel called Le Murtet in the Boulards' home village of Cormicy in the Massif de Saint-Thierry in the far north of the Montagne de Reims. As for all Boulard vines, the farming is certified-organic and biodynamic. The bunches are harvested by hand and destemmed; fermentation is in oak with indigneous yeasts with a three-week maceration and daily pumpovers. The wine is aged in new Burgundy barrels for 18 months and bottled without fining or filtering.

"Powerful and vinous in the glass, the Boulard's NV Brut Nature Petraea shows the natural radiance of the 2012 vintage off to great effect. Dried flowers, mint, orchard fruit and lemon confit all infuse the Petraea with notable character and textural resonance. This release is so expressive and so delicious. No dosage. Lot 03/2019. Harvest 2012."
