R. Pouillon Chemin du Bois 2015
This is Fabrice Pouillon's most daring wine. Conceived as a Champagne that shows how farming can affect ripeness and ultimately influence the Champagne Method, which is highly interventionist, this Champagne is made only with grapes and grape sugar without any other sugar added. It is legal to add sugar in three steps in making Champagne: chaptalization, prise de mousse, and dosage. Fabrice sources this 100% Pinot Noir from a single parcel in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ called "Chemin du Bois."
