CHAMPAGNE BLANC D’ARGILE

 

Bertrand’s “Blanc d’Argile”, which takes its name from the strong clay component of the soils the vines grow on near the village of Buxières-sur-Arce in the heart of the Côte des Bar, is a Blanc de Blancs of majestic substance and enlightening finesse. The Chardonnay grapes, once carefully hand-harvested, ferment wildly with their native yeasts and then undergo the second fermentation in the bottle, after which the wine ages and rests for no less than 36 months between barrel and bottle. Ethereal yet deeply and beautifully tense and vibrant, it sings with minerality and notes of bergamot confit, dried elderflowers and spiced pink grapefruit.
