Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
Collard Picard, Essentiel, Champagne, France, 750ml
The grandfather of Olivier, the current owner, was actually a pioneer of organic farming in Champagne. Oddly enough they aren’t certified, because they believe they do not need proof, that they haven’t used any pesticides or other unorganic matter in their vineyards for over 100 years. The Essentiel is truly spectacular. The Zero dosage means the wine truly showcases every aspect of these spectacular vineyards. Based on 50% Chardonnay from the chalky Cotes de Blancs the wines is balanced by the richness of both Pinots. It is a special occasion for wine. If it was up to us, the special occassion would be, celebrating every minute of every day.
