Seamless and multidimensional, it's worth a special effort to seek out.
About The Wine
Les Roises is a tiny parcel of sixty year old Chardonnay vines in Olivier Collin's home village of Congy, in the south of Champagne.
The fruit is picked late and ripe but the scintillating Chardonnay acidity is still very much present. Four years on lees, very low dosage, it's all silk and power, layered and concetrated.
It is an intense drinking experience, more akin to tasting great white burgundy, than celebratory bubbles. One of Champagne's great wines, of which only small amounts get to Australia.
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.
