The town of Les Riceys, where the slopes are formed of Kimmeridgian chalk, that same great stuff that is the foundation of the finest Chablis and Sancerre, not typcially what one would find in Champagne. Olivier is in the Aube, one of the most exciting region of Champagne. This however, is not Champagne, it is a still wine of Pinot Noir and it is called Rosé de Riceys & 2015 is the current release. En Barmont is a steep slope with heavy clay. Olivier believes this rosé is the first single vineyard wine to be made from this site in over a century.
Grape: Pinot Noir
Farming: Organic, unfined and unfiltered
*The Horiot family are one of the last families to produce the excellent Rosé des Riceys. They are the only ones bottling not one but two single vineyard expressions of it.
