1701 Franciacorta Brut Nature NV

Lombardy, Italy1701 Franciacorta is a 10 hectare biodynamic certified estate, the first and only certified biodynamic producer in the Franciacorta region. This Brut Nature blends the structural elegance of 85% Chardonnay, and the character of 15% Pinot Nero, aged for a minimum of 30 months on the lees. This bottle was disgorged in April 2020. Yellow and red apple, bread dough lead this creamy, medium-bodied sparkler, scented with marzipan, and finishing with a shimmering buzz. The zero dosage keeps this taut and lively on the palate. Quite smart and fresh.Tasted: 11 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 49.95 consignment Producer: 1701 FranciacortaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
