is a négoce sparkling born out of Chidaine’s low yields in 2018 and should not

sandy/clay topsoil with limestone (tuffeau) bedrock.
Following a pneumatic pressing, the juice was fermented with
indigenous yeasts in large format barrels for up to six months. The wine was
then aged for a further six months on its fine lees in tank and transferred to
bottle to rest sur lattes for a minimum of 12 months. No malolactic
fermentation, no chaptalization, no dosage.
