Champagne CLANDESTIN Boréal Blanc de Noirs Brut Nature


16 in stock


Champagne Clandestin is the adventure of a Burgundian, Benoît Doussot, who notes that Champagne terroirs are not delimited like in his native Burgundy. Unlike Burgundy, Champagne has no climates, and that’s where he got the idea of looking for grapes from different terroirs on the Côte des Bar. And so, in 2016, his first vintages were born. Boréal will be made from old Pinot Noir vines planted facing due north, on Kimmeridgian soil typical of the Côte des Bar. This is the same plot as Austral, but with a harsher exposure. It’s amusing to see the difference in wine between the same plot and 2 different exposures. Brought up at the Vouette & Sorbée school, the champagnes are made from a single vintage. They are not dosed and are vinified in oak barrels as naturally as possible. It’s a powerful, austere Champagne, typical of its northern geolocation, but one that seeks to remain dignified and elegant, with lovely, expressive aromas.
