Olivier Horiot Sève Noirs et Blancs Extra Brut 2014

Olivier Horiot Sève appears cool, mineral and elegant. Bright lemon yellow colour and fine perlage. The nose opens with generous aromas of lemon tart, ripe quince, brioche, candied ginger and a hint of salty oyster shells. A present acidity creates a clean entry to the palate, which displays lemon zest and spicy notes, beautiful substance, freshness and a mineral finish.

100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from the "Les Barmont" site, which has a red loam base soil with Kimmeridgien limestone in the subsoil. The site is located in the village of Les Riceys, a small region in a lesser-known part of Champagne. Olivier Horiot practices biodynamic viticulture and natural vinifications.

Fermentation and maturation in wooden vats after the harvest. A long maturation on the lees is a foundation at Olivier Horiot. Degorgement took place exactly six years after the harvest day (14.9.2020).
