Elégance Extra Brut NV Champagne (375ml)
80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
The pinot brings bright raspberry aromas and a hint of red apple on the palate while the extended lees aging gives it a dense toasty richness. Yet it remains bright, fresh, delicate and elegant.
Vincent Couche makes extraordinary Champagnes that are complex due to his extended aging on the lees - this bottle spent 3 years sur lie. The bead is fine, the fruit focused and the finish dry. Vincent Couche is an extraordinary grower in a region dominated by big brands that offer less-enticing selections. Vincent Couche is part of an incredible movement of small-growers who estate bottle their wines and in Vincent's case, is fully Biodynamic - a rarity in all of the region.
