Vineyard: Harvest from massale selection vines 35-40 years in age from a single, 2.5 hectares parcel located in Polisot (Cote des Bar).
Soil: Clay and Kimmerdigian Limestone bands similar to those found in Chablis. The Cotes des Bar is closer in proximity to Chablis than to Epernay.
Viticulture: Farmed biodynamically and hand harvested
Vinification: Fermented in tank using natural yeasts (for both fermentations).
Aging: Aged sur lie for three years. Zero dosage, zero sulfur.
Disgorgement: April 2017
Production: Very limited
Notes: Citrus and floral, this sans soufre Blanc de Noirs has so much to say with a rich core of fruit and complex flavors.
The NV (2013) Extra Brut Sans Soufre Concordance is fabulous. Apricot, orange peel, chamomile, smoke and a host of yellow orchard fruit flavors give this Pinot Noir character. Today, the Concordance is brooding and tightly coiled. I would give it at least another 6-12 months on the cork to be at its best. Disgorged in April 2017 with no dosage.
