Champagne Rémi Leroy Extra Brut NV

Côte des Bar, Champagne, FranceBased in the Aube, which shares the same Portlandian and Kimmeridgian limestone soils as Chablis just further south, young Remi farms 3 of his family's organic 9ha under this label; the rest of the grapes are sold to large champagne houses. This current Extra Brut, his largest production wine at 25K bottles / year, is based on 2021 (v21) and blends 70% pinot noir, 20% pinot meunier, 10% chardonnay, with 20% reserve wines. Primarily fermented in stainless, with full MLF, 20% saw wood aging prior to 2 years sur lattes and 2 g/L dosage, in April 2023. Crunchy red and green apple, white cherry streaks across a buzzy limestone palate, with streaks of cider and ample salinity. An authentic, pure, and natural look at Côtes des Bar.Tasted: 16 November 2023Tasted by: Prices:
