Pierre Baillette 'Cœur de l'historie' Extra Brut, 1er Cru, Champagne, France NV (dis. 03.19)

Pierre Baillette - Perine (Pierre's daugher) is Alexandre Chartogne's wife, from Chartogne-Taillet. The Domaine and vineyards have been in her family for generations and she took over everything around 2009. Her production is much smaller than her husbands, at only 600-1000 bottles per cuvée, other than the Le Village, which is about 3000 bottles. Stylistically, the wines are very similar to Alex's wines - vinous, slightly oxidative, very mineral and (at the top end) based on single vineyard expressions.  Expressive & elegant but persistent mousse, lemon, fresh baked bread & wet stones. 

Pairing: French fries, fried chicken, life....

Grape: 60% Chardonnay from Trois Puits, 40% Pinot Noir from Rilly la Montagne from harvest 14 & 15

Soil: Chalk of Montange de Riems

Viticulture: Since 2010 no pesticide are used on the vines. Two horses are often walking in the vineyard. Manual harvest.
