Our latest allocation of this cuvée is based on the 2020 vintage (80% from the vintage, 20% from reserve wine), and is a wonderful example of how organic and biodynamic practises can create incredibly characterful champagnes. Pinot Noir dominant, this north-west exposure plot is complex  Ethe winemaker Paul even referred to it as the  Eulky, teenage Evineyard, requiring constant management. The wine has a beautiful roundness, still elegant and fine but with a power that is irrepressible.

Highly aromatic, with red fruits bursting from the nose, the palate is full and round with a beautiful texture and a hint of pepper. There is also a strong minerality in the finish, with a tantalizing taste of chalk on the tip of your tongue. This is without doubt a perfect gastronomic wine, to enjoy and share with oysters or white meat dishes.
