Story: Delphine Boulard now heads the estate she co-founded in 2009 with her father Francis. The domaine’s three hectares of holdings spread around three of Champagne, each with differing soils but all farmed biodynamically. The grapes for this Grand Cru cuvée are located on a 0.5 hectare plot in Mailly-Champagne, on the Montagne de Reims.
Vinification: Vines averaging 30 years-old growing on clay-limestone soils. The four parcels for this wine are harvested the same day, the grapes are pressed all together and then settled for 1-2 days in stainless steel. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic fermentation in oak cask. The wine rests on the less for a minimum of 18 months, then is disgorged with no dosage added, and allowed to settle another 6 months before release. The wine is disgorged with no dosage added, and allowed to settle another 6 months before release. Unfined. All activities in the cellar follow the lunar calendar.
