The newest champagne in the Apollonis-Michel Loriot range. New paths are being explored with this cuvée. The hand of Marie, Michel's daughter can be found in this wine. Marie recently won prizes as a young, talented female winemaker in Champagne. The blend is made in proportion to the planting of the grapes: 69% Meunier, 27% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Noir. All grapes come from the vineyard in Festigny. Vintage 2014.
Power of the terroir
This cuvée clearly shows the power of the terroir in Festigny, together with the characteristic Meunier tones with low dosage. It is a style that many winemakers from the region pursue, and this only works if you keep the yields low. The result: a fresh, dry-mineral wine with a powerful bouquet and mouthfeel. Citrus and white flowers, with a thin layer of honey. The low dosage really brings out the purity of the fruit. Modern style for sure. With future potential!
