Champagne Nominé Renard Brut NV

Champagne, FranceBased in Villevenard (Vallé de la Marne), the Nominé family's vineyards extend over 20 hectares, spread over the slopes of Petit Morin, Sézannais, and the Marne valley. The diversity gives 3rd generation Simon Nominé lots to work with in his blends. Their flagship NV Brut blends 40% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir, and 30% pinot meunier from 6 villages (30 different plots) across the terroirs above, with 3/4 of the blend from the most recent 3 vintages, and 25% older reserves. After 30 months on lees, this was dosed with 10 g/L. Ripe red apple, lemon pith and peel, this is quite zesty, with a generous brioche base. A flick of alluring reduction finishes with ample sea salt. Lovely completeness and friendliness from the higher dosage.Tasted: 01 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
