2006 Les Grands Nots Brut Nature
33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir & 33% Chardonnay
For the tête de cuvée, the family recalled back to old French, to the word “Nots” meaning springs or fountains. The spot in the cellar where Grands Nots sees its extended aging as known as “nots.” Vineyards are located on the 5.7 ha in the Petit Morin Valley at the south-east of Côte des Blancs.
Traditional wild yeast fermentation in foudre (100%) followed by lees aging with bâtonnage for six months. Secondary fermentation and further aging on the lees for 10 years.

“Unwinds in the glass with a pretty bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, citrus oil, honeycomb and marzipan. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, broad and powerful, with a youthfully frothy mousse, surprisingly incisive acids for the vintage and a precise, saline finish.”
