Lacourte-Godbillon 2016 Chaillots Hautes Vignes 1er Cru Extra Brut

Écueil is very much Pinot Noir country, so this Blanc de Blancs is something of a unicorn. The wine is fermented in used barriques and left en tirage for more than four years, before being disgorged with 2 gm. of dosage. The result is taut and saline, with depths of flavour and impressive length. 60 bottles only.

very small quantity, not every year.
very uncommon for a 100% Chardonnay on a Pinot noir terroir.
