Just beautiful. Super expressive and nuanced. Reduction this wine showed when young is less aggressive now. Quiet New Years at home.

Now this is how you do champagne! The wife's namesake never disappoints.

Blanc the Noirs du Domaine Cédric Bouchard in the Aube area, named after a parcel of Pinot Noir planted in 1974. 1.5 hectare of organic vineyard in this lieu-dit called "Val Vilaine".
1st press juice only, hand harvested and crushed by foot, fermented using indigenous yeast. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Aged for 16 months on the lees in stainless steel. Bottled with no dosage. Vintage 2013, dégorgement April 2015. A kind of marine freshness that slap gently on your nose. Certainly on the palate I would say: "perfect dosage" though, in fact there's no dosage at all but I didn't know yet. Wish to drink it down a full tank!

Excellent grower from the Aube. Structured, well-layered flavors of ripe strawberries and salty sea air.
