Bottle Champagne Petraea

Petraea champagne is created using a method similar to that of the Solera. Each year, the previous year's wine is added in the proportion of 50%. This means that the wine contains some of all the earlier vintages in decreasing proportions. This perpetual reserve was restarted in 2012 as organic champagne. Therefore, the first version is Vintage 2012 .

Wine: Petraea
Appellation: Champagne Brut Nature
(Champagne Vintage for the 2012 version)
Terroir: Plot called "Le Murtet" - Sandy limestone terroir on the Massif de Saint-Thierry
Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Dosage: 0 g/L AB logo Organic

Vinification :
Only "la cuvée" (the first juice from the first pressing) is used to make this champagne. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Vinified on fine lees in 25 hl oak casks with batonnages (beating in). Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. Unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting notes
The nose is intense and generous. Scents of fruits, of white flowers with spicy hints. In the mouth the champagne is broad and rich, powerful though still possessing good freshness.

Suggestions
Serve at 10 °C (50°F) as an aperitif, or at table with fish, poultry, white meats and cheeses.
