Emmauel's vineyards are located in the little village of Villers-Aux-Noeux in the Montagne de Reims on the lieu-dit “Le Mont Benoit”. The single vineyard of 2.5ha is planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and situated on a slope divided in two parts; on the upper level the oldest vines were planted in 1962, on the lower level the youngest in 1984.
The soil is made of silt, clay and chalk. Emmanuel's approach is artisanal in the vineyards and in the cellar, all the work is done by him and almost entirely by hand. In 2011, the estate was certified organic though Emmanuel has farmed for the last 10 years without any chemicals. As he says the main goal is for the plant to find its balance without stressing it.
In the cellar, he uses a traditional vertical press. It allows him to press with precision some small batches. Only the cuvee is selected and brought to barrique for fermentation which is carried naturally, a small amount of SO2 is added after the malo ends.
In the last few years, Emmanuel was able to select his own ambient yeasts to start the second fermentation with success. All the wines are Extra-Brut and the production is around 7,000 to 8,000 bottles. His main cuvee called Le Mont Benoit Extra Brut is an assemblage of 2 vintages. His wines are really pure, precise and showing minerality combined with ripeness and great pleasure.
그리 쉽지 않은 빈티지에 생산된 와인임에도 불구하고 역시나 기대 이상의 매력적인 퍼포먼스를 보여 주었으며 특히 Les Hauts Chardonnays 특유의 crispy한 애시디티와 잔잔한 피니쉬에서 느껴지는 풍성한 minerals 터치가 일품인..

I have had great experiences with 2014 whites from meursault recently 📝 This chardonnay offers crisp apples, limestone and floral notes on the nose. On the palate it is well balanced with good length. A high standard of an entry level burg 📸 #AlpineCellar
