    One of two of Alexandre’s single vineyard champagnes that we are listing this year, from very rare ungrafted vines planted in 1955 alongside the lieu-dit of Les Barres in sands and limestone over chalk. Initially aged in a 16hl cement egg (so just 1900 bts produced), which Alexandre finds give a finer, more delicate, very terroir driven wine with no easy fruit (think oats, mushrooms, salinity and bitters). It was bottled off in July 2012 and was disgorged last year with a 3g/l dosage. Even in a difficult vintage, can Champagne get any better than this? VLQ. For drinking now to 2020.
