N/V Brut Nature Grand Cru, Benoît Lahaye
90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay. Just 4.8 hectares in the spectacularly well-named village of Bouzy, as well as in Ambonnay. They converted to biodynamic viticulture in the early 2000s, and their low yields and wonderful maturity produce wines with exceptional concentration and balance. Oak ageing adds to their complexity. They carry out malolactic fermentation and disgorge without the addition of dosage. This comes from Grand Cru parcels of wines with an average age of 30 years. The blend contains 55% wines from the 2014 vintage and reserve wine from the 2013 vintage and earlier. It spent two and a half years ageing in bottle before disgorgement.
