NV Ulysse Collin 'Les Pierrieres' Blanc de Blancs (Base 17, Disg Mar 2021)

$270.00

Region: Champagne, FRA

Variety: Chardonnay

Les Pierrières is a 1.3-hectare parcel west of Congy in the Côteaux du Morin, very near the southern tip of the Côte des Blancs. It’s an east-sloping site with chalky soil containing large chunks of black silex (or onyx), something very rare in Champagne. This soil might well be responsible for the smoky hint in the wine’s profile. There is only 10-40 cm of topsoil before the vines hit the soft chalk and silex of the bedrock. The vines are now 35 years old.

This is one of the historic wines from this producer, first produced in 2004. The current release is based on 2017 with a very high 65% reserve wine from 2016 (from the same vineyard). Naturally fermented in neutral oak casks, the wine was put to bottle after 11 months and then disgorged in March 2020, after 36 months on lees with only 1.7 g/L dosage added. It was neither fined nor filtered.
