1701 Franciacorta Satèn Brut 2018

Brescia, Lombardy, Italy1701 Franciacorta is a 10 hectare biodynamic certified estate, the first and only certified biodynamic producer in the Franciacorta region. This Chardonnay was native fermented in stainless steel and older barriques, before spending 30 months on lees prior to disgorgement in January 2022, with 0 dosage. As per the Satèn style, this is softer and creamier on the palate, with Chardonnay's apple and light brioche notes livened with silken, fine bubbles, through a very saline finish. A dry, serious Satèn.Tasted: 14 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
