3C Trois Grape Variety Brut Nature
Jerome Bourgeois-Diaz, class ’77, manages about thirty vineyard plots for a total of just over six hectares, of which over three are planted with pinot meunier, two cultivated with pinot noir and one with chardonnay. Following the dictates of biodynamic agriculture. Vines that reach an average age of 35 years, they do not know pesticides or synthetic substances, as well as in the cellar chemical yeasts and any other artificial additives are banned. After fermentation, one third of the wines mature in oak barrels and two thirds of them in stainless steel tanks. Finally the cuvée is created, and the 40 thousand bottles per year are released on the market only after long periods of rest on the lees, ranging from 2 years for basic cuvées, to 5 years for the most important Champagnes.
Biodynamic Champagne Extra Brut “’ 3C Three Grape Varieties ”, born from the union of three different varieties, and rest at least 27 months on yeast before blossoming. It offers a level of complexity that is not always found in labels of the same category, and it is offered at an absolutely unbeatable quality / price ratio. In the glass it is intense straw yellow in the glass, with abundant golden reflections and fine and persistent perlage. On the nose, citrus hints and mineral veins are enriched by deep references to bread crust. Pure, well structured and extremely fascinating on the palate.
