The year 2020 gave birth to the most prestigious vintage in the Gremillet range. Just 50 meters away, in the famous town of Les Riceys, "Clos Rocher" is 1.4 hectares of the king of grapes for the region - Pinot Noir.
"... I would like to put a wall all around, not to separate, but to reunite… The key will be on the door and whoever wants to enter, will enter. I would like a wall that is an act of love, like a necklace around the neck of the one we love..." - from a poem about Clos Rocher
100% pinot noir grapes from the 2013 harvest only with very selective sorting in the vineyard for perfect ripeness. The grapes come exclusively from Clos Rocher. Only the cuvée (1st press) enters into the production of this Champagne. Alcoholic fermentation at 16° and malolactic fermentation at 18° in stainless steel thermoregulated vats. Aging of at least 7 years. Brut Dosage at 7 g/l with the "liqueur d'expedition" using the same wine returned to the barrel.
This exceptional and beautifully-presented champagne, offers the finest of mousse in a bright yellow colour. On the nose, aromas of ripe apple, citrus and ripe red berries with hints of hazelnuts and light brioche. On the palate, it is dry, medium-bodied with a beautiful balance and a surprising freshness, despite its age. Superbly balanced and harmonious, it wraps up the experience with a medium+ finish.
Pair it with fish, fowl or even sushi. Better yet, pair it with your favourite person and celebrate everything that is joyous in your life.
