Bolder style, but excellent.
About The Wine
Here is Fabrice Pouillon's 100% Pinot Noir cuveé from the 2016 vintage.
Of the vintage Champagnes from this outstanding producer, this is the richest and most opulent. Bold flavours and a general sense of expansiveness in the mouth, this is falt out delicious.
Only a small amount of this cuveé was imported to Australia this year and it won't last long.
About Champagne R. Pouillon
Champagne R. Pouillon was founded by Roger Pouillon in 1947.
Today, the Domaine is managed by Roger's grandson, Fabrice, who continues to hand-craft each cuveé using traditional methods. Each grape is picked by hand, the wines all pressed in an ancient wooden basket press, every one of his 40 parcels is vinified separately - it's a time-honoured, hands-on approach that is producing superlative wines.
Fabrice farms some of the finest terroirs in Champagne, including Ay Grand Cru, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Mutigny, Epernay. He began conversion to organic farming in 2003. Since then, the wines have garnered plenty of acclaim for their complexity, purity, and translation of terroir.
R. Pouillon is one of the most outstanding producers in Champagne today.
