CHAMPAGNE | FRANCE

This is the new vision and name for the Esprit Nature using a new wine vessel, which is the concrete egg that makes up 60% of the base wine with the remainder coming from barrels sourced from the Argonne Forest. The wine only ages for 6 months in both of these vessels and then rests on its lees for up to 36 months, rounding out the body and adding some palate weight to it. This is predominantly Aÿ pinot noir at 80% and the rest chardonnay.

Lifted red apple, some rose petal notes. Delicate and vibrant with lots of expression. The palate is light and fresh with fleshy white peach fruit. The concrete eggs are more porous than oak allowing a little more oxygen into the wine. This also allows for a different aromatic profile to say stainless steel, which in our view allows for that very expressive nose.
