This is a wine of energy. It bursts with citrus notes, nectarine and a salty, smoky edge.
Les Pierrières is a 1.3 hectare parcel in the Cotéaux du Petit Morin near the southern tip of the Côte des Blancs.
The vines are now 35-years-old and the current release is based on 2015 with 60% reserve wine from 2014 (from the same vineyard).
“Disgorged in March 2019 with 1.7 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Pierrières (2015) is based on the 2015 vintage and contains fully 60% reserve wines from 2014.
“It’s still a touch shut down after its recent disgorgement, unwinding in the glass with scents of lemon oil, pomelo and crisp white peach that mingle with nuances of lily pollen and freshly baked bread. Full-bodied, deep and concentrated on the palate, it’s searingly intense, with a racy spine of acidity that lends the wine incredible cut and energy, despite its unquestionable breadth and concentration. The finish is long, mouth-watering and electric. This is another brilliant Pierrières from Collin, but at least a year’s patience is warmly recommended.” 96+ points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, Issue 244
