Elegance
Delicacy
Sensuousness

Origin

Les Parcelles is crafted from 100% estate-grown fruit surrounding the village of Bouzy in the Montagne de Reims. This cuvée is a blend of 22 plots whose vines average 25 years in age. Les Parcelles is a rare expression of a single cru village (Bouzy). In Champagne, the blending of fruit from many villages is the norm. Grape variety: 60% Pinot Noir 40% Chardonnay Vintage: based on 2012 (65%) and 2011 (35%) Dosage: 2.6 grams per liter (Extra-Brut)

Vinification

Les Parcelles was vinified in stainless steel. After the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, the wine was kept on its lees for eight months until bottling.

Ageing

The champagne is aged in our 19th century cellars at a depth of 53 feet/16 meters and at a constant 50°F/10°C temperature. The combination of a second slow fermentation (2 months) and 4 years of sur lie ageing crafts a wine of balance and finesse.

Tasting

Les Parcelles offer plenty of Bouzy character by delivering a wine of depth and creamy richness. Flavors and aromas of toasted bread, pear nectar and honey unfold upon the palate. The finish is all smoke and lees and lingering toastiness. In combination, the wine is generous, complex and multi-faceted with broad appeal.

Recommendation

Brioche and cheese pastry Poultry and white meats. Any type of fish
