Truly extrarodinary Champagne from 100% Pinot Noir grown on the foothills of Bouzy, regarded as the finest site for Pinot Noir in Champagne. This has a miniscule dosage of just 6 grams/liter, only 1 gram above the Extra Brut level, allowing the flavors to be transparent. You get a clear taste of the red fruits coming form the Pinot Noir and the richness of the wine. This release has a very high percentage of reserve wine, 50%, while the base wine is equal parts 2008 and 2009. It is a big Champagne that's flavor-packed but tightly knit.
