CHAMPAGNE BRUT NATURE 11, 12, 13...
The aptly named “11,12,13” is a deeply terroir-driven and brightly sensuous natural Champagne is the only one of this natural and biodynamic maison that is a blend of all of their parcels rather than hailing from a single “Lieux-Dit”, as well as being an assemblage of all vintages from 2011 to 2015. Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it ferments with its native yeasts then sees an elevage of 18-20 months in large barrels and barriques. Shimmeringly mineral, fresh and imbued with joyous depth: pink grapefruit rind, cinnamon stick, lemongrass and wild yellow plums. Like all the wines from this precious biodynamic maison, this Champagne is a brut nature (no dosage added to initiate the second fermentation) and has no added SO2 from the 2013 vintage..
