Closure Type: Cork
Wine Style: Champagne - Dry
Grape: Pinot Noir
The Pinot Noir grapes for ‘Ultra D‘ are sourced from the Côte des Bar and the Chardonnay from the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs & Montgueux. The low yielding vines, with an average age of 30 years, give good concentration and weight; combined with the high quality of the grapes, this means that the final dosage is very low making a dry but round style of champagne. Tasting Notes: Lovely pale gold in colour, with a fine, persistent mousse indicative of the long period of bottle ageing. The nose is nicely developed but still fresh, with notes of hazelnuts and spice. On the palate the low dosage allows the quality of the Pinot Noir fruit to shine through, with hints of ripe pear and more hazelnuts. The finish is long, fresh and dry.
