The base wine for this Vieilles Vignes (old vines) champagne comes from the Pierre Robert Haut, Tarclette and Varmery parcels.
These parcels are selected for the age of the vines – 45 years on average – because each vine stock yields a good one third fewer grapes than younger vines. This means the grapes have a more pronounced aromatic potential and optimum maturity on harvest. The primary aromas are typical of Aÿ Pinot Noir : blackcurrant, small red fruits, present on both the nose and palate, with a light spice on the finish.
The aromas evolve as the mousse develops in the bottle and to date there is a predominance of juicy fruits: white peach, confit lemon. Initially lively on the palate, the wine is nonetheless well-balanced, vinous, straightforward and well-structured with a long light finish. It will delight purists who favour single variety champagnes over blends.Fiche Technique
