Bulles de Comptoir par Charles Dufour "Stillleben" #8 Champagne Extra Brut NVRegular price $54.00 Save $-54.00
60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Blanc. Base 2017, 15% reserve wine from 2010-2016. Fermented in older barrels, disgorged January 2020. Small sulfur addition only at first press.
Notes of sharp cheddar and salt, it has a dry, chalky finish and excellent cut. This is a unique Champagne, and I hesistate to call it funky, but the hint of oxidative flavors and cheese rind take it in that direction. This is year after year a delicious and compelling take on Champagne from the Aube. [Jonathan Kemp October, 2020]
