About The Wine
Les Maillons is another awesome single vineyard wine from Champagne Ulysse Collin (who may be the only producer in Champagne to only release single-vineyard wines).
It is 100% Pinot Noir from the slopes of the Cotes de Sezanne, a couple of hours from the winery in Congy, and the variety really shows through the red fruit aromas and vinous, luxurious mouthfeel. So complex and fine-wine like, the bubbles are almost superfluous.
Only tiny amounts come into Australia once a year, so jump on this now.
About Ulysse Collin
To be mentioned in the same breath as legendary Champagne House Jacques Selosse is a pretty big deal and Ulysse Collin is definitely there.
Describing his 2001 vintage with Anselme Selosse as "one of those encounters that changes your life” Olivier is now well and truly making his own mark on the region and the broader Champagne-drinking world.
These artisanally-crafted Champagnes are very rare and becoming more sought-after with each release.
