    100% Pinot Noir from the Vauzelle Terme lieu-dit in Aÿ. The parcel lies on the mid-slope facing due south. It features alluvial calcareous top soil over blocks of Campanian chalk. Planted to Pinot Noir in 1980, with 2,500 vines over 0.3 hectares . Cordon de Royat pruning. Grapes picked on 25th September 2008 with 7.2g/L acidity. Bottled on 19th May 2009. Disgorged in April 2018. No dosage. 2008 was a year characteristic of our northern clime: spring was cool and rainy, summer dry and windy, as was September. Proof that Champagne can produce a great vintage despite a cool growing season!

    Super fine, fresh, lightly toasted bread, stone and chalk with lemon blossom and toasted almonds. The palate has such finesse and precision and delivers a super fine, lemon thread of flavor with fine-etched acidity, delivering length and detail. So elegant. Drink or hold.

    From a 30-are parcel of Pinot Noir vines planted in 1980 comes the newly released 2008 Extra Brut Grand Cru Aÿ Vauzelle Terme, a wine that was disgorged in April 2018 without dosage. Unfurling in the glass with aromas of wild berries, cassis, minty red apples and wet stones, it's full-bodied, ample and mouthfilling, with broad shoulders but a tight-knit, introspective and even somewhat austere core, concluding with an immensely long, sapid finish. The potential here is considerable, but this is the most reserved of these three lieu-dit bottlings and will demand a little patience.
