The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and gently pressed. The wine ferments spontaneously in neutral barrels. No malolactic fermentation, the wine rests in barrels on fine lees for about 11 months. Bottled with liqueur de tirage and aged on lees for at least 42 months for the secondary fermentation (prise de mousse), disgorged, and topped up using the same wine, with a dosage of 4g/l (extra brut).
Personality: the warm, stony terroir brings a lot of solar energy to this wine. It’s round and vinous, with a lot of generous exotic flavors (mango, passion fruit..), underlined by signature Charlot zesty energy.
