    The lieu-dit of Fosse-Grely was where Benedicte’s father first planted vines back in 1970. Here there is a thin layer of red clay and thick compacted limestone beneath. Aged for nine months in futs and demi-muids, and then for 20 months sur lattes like all of the Ruppert-Leroy champagnes there is a beautiful tension and feeling of controlled energy. Here the fruit is citrus and peach, with notes of fennel and mint, with subtle bitters on a mineral inflected finish. No sulphur. For drinking now to 2020.
