CHAMPAGNE EXTRA BRUT BLANC DE NOIRS 'ALMANACH N°4' GRATIOT & CIE 2013 DESCRIPTION

Gratiot & Cie's Brut Blanc de Noirs "Almanach n°4" is an Extra Brut Millesimé Champagne produced in the Vallée de la Marne area, with the dark berry grape variety most widely grown in the area, Meunier, and a bit of Pinot Noir. The particular nature of the cuvée gives us a Champagne with good structure and a rich and intense aromatic profile. The 8 years of aging spent on yeasts, allow the wine to evolve enriching itself with precious facets, which increase its gustatory complexity and persistence on the palate. It is a perfect champagne to enjoy at the table throughout a meal, even with important pairings.

The Champagne Brut Blanc de Noirs Extra-Brut "Almanach n°4" is a vintage Champagne that originates in Gratiot & Cie's Domaine de Charly-sur-Marne. This is a family-owned Maison, which has been growing grapes in Champagne for five generations and now manages about 18 hectares of vineyards in the Vallée de la Marne region. The vineyards are located in the communal territory of 7 different villages and are divided into 43 parcels, representing a small mosaic with different exposures and soils, ideal for creating harmonious and balanced cuvées. The most widely cultivated grape variety is obviously Meunier, the most typical and widespread in the area. The marly soils of the Vallée de la Marne, in fact, give the best conditions to express grapes with rich and fragrant fruit.

Gratiot & Cie's Blanc de Noirs "Almanach n°4" is a Champagne Brut Millesimato perfect for those who want to know the true face of the Vallée de la Marne and its territorial typicality. The base is a great Meunier, grown on limestone-clay soils, with the presence of silt. Fermentations take place in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The vins clairs undergo malolactic fermentation and are then chosen to create the final blend. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Champenoise method, with aging sur lattes for 90 months. The wine has a golden yellow color and is traversed by a fine, continuous perlage. The bouquet opens on intense aromas of small berries, ripe yellow fruit and hints of bread crust. The sip is broad, rich and deep, with a complex center of the mouth and a finish of great mineral freshness.
