Reductive at first, but it opened up to some nice cherry, liquorice, dark chocolate, sweet spice, and smoky notes. Palate was a touch harsh with the tannins and acid. Some earth and minerality showing too. Wine totally threw us. As opposed to the notes found, we thought it was rather bunchy and heavier in the new oak use. Unique? Yes, but just not my cup of tea. Definitely an intrigue for them Burg drinkers I reckon. Notes: GC Pinot Noir from a 70 acre plot in Ay, La Côte aux Enfants (small? Maybe in the champagne sense). Spent 8 months in smaller format 205 litre oak casks, which are 3 to 5 years old. Completely destemmed. Only free run wine.

This was harder to source, but what a treat! I've become obsessed with Coteaux Champenoise after my trip to the motherland of Champagne and ever since has been trying to get my hands on all Coteaux that are being imported to tr states. Cold cold pinot noir with immense minerality and concentrated cranberry and red cherry aromas. So good!
