Caze-Thibault, Champagne Extra Brut 'Naturellement', NV [2018]

by Caze-Thibault
$59.99
The Cazé family has been growing grapes in the Vallée de la Marne for 10 generations, and making wine commercially since the 1950s. From 2013 on, Fabien Cazé has farmed a selection of small parcels for his own small and ambitious project. This cuvée is 100% Pinot Meunier, farmed organically and with minimal dosage added at bottling, a mere 1.7g/L. It offers bracing minerality, a rippling and complex texture and zippy, herbaceous fruit notes.  For all of his wines, Fabien employs cold, slow native yeast fermentations (in 228-350L barrels) and long periods of aging on the fine lees, ranging from 24-72 months depending on the vintage and cuvée. We strongly believe he's a rising star worth keeping an eye on.

VARIETALS
Pinot Meunier
VARIETAL NOTES
100% Pinot Meunier
ORGANIC
Certified
VINEYARD
From 6 small parcels of vines in Châtillon and Vandières on the western edge of the Vallee de la Marne.
SOIL
Clay limestone
VITICULTURE
Parcels are worked without the use of any herbicides or pesticides. Fabien “scratches” or hoes the soils preferring to minimally disrupt the soil structure and plant life. From pruning to harvesting all vineyard work is done by hand and each parcel is harvested separately. Harvesting occurs when the grapes are at optimal ripeness.
VINIFICATION
Grapes are pressed slowly and gently and all juice is moved by gravity into steel tank. Once each parcel is pressed, half of the juice is transferred into a combination of 228, 350, and 330L barrels for a long, cold and slow native yeast fermentation in Caze's underground cellar. Malolactic fermentation is not forced and with the cave’s low temperatures, rarely completes. No filtration occurs and dosage levels are determined by blind taste testing before final disgorgement.
AGING
Aged 24 months sur lattes.
