Chardonnay et Pinot Noir

La Côte Appellation d’origine contrôlée

This is our sparkling wine made using the traditional method. The name refers to the summit of the vine that we sometimes trim in summer, a word we associate with vertical growth and also with the path of a bubble as it moves up to explode on the surface of a liquid.
Festive, joyous – this sparkling wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Little or no dosage keeps it fresh and digestible; the wine will be part of many shared moments.

VINTAGE

Harvest on 29th September 2014

After more than thirty vintages vinified at the Domaine, the situations are always new: to adapt is a pleasure and a need renewed every year.

Let's look at what were the characteristics of the 2014 vintage:

  • A mild spring encouraged bud burst, showing its first leaves 10 days ahead of average.
  • Fairly cool, May and June do not favor flowering: we know that the vine does not affect the climatic extremes. The advance is only three days!
  • July, very wet, forced us to be very vigilant. But our experience of 15 years in biodynamics allowed us to pass the course without damage.
  • Finally, in August, at veraison (when the grains become translucent and start to have sugar) the health of our vines is perfect and the evolution of the maturation very promising.
  • Despite the Drosophila "suzukii" which gave us more fear than harm, we were able to start the grape harvest without any problems on September 29th, and finish on October 15th. Either quite average dates, and more advance at all!

This mild weather in spring, difficult in summer, and sunny in autumn is well suited to the vine and allows us to obtain remarkable wines by their crystalline freshness, their aromatic complexity, and their mineral structure. Keeping most of what nature gives us is a philosophy that is important to us and that we like to share.

Millésime 2010 – Dégustation fin 2015
Vinum – Winzerlegende Raymond Paccot (10|2015) INT
La Côte AOC Apex 2010

“Dieser Schaumwein, aus Chardonnay und Pinot Noir gekeltert, reifte vier Jahre auf der Hefe, bis er degorgiert wurde. Der Brut Nature mit einem einzigen Gramm Restzucker begeistert mit seiner knackigen Frische und schnörkellosen Art.”

Dégustation fin 2010
Vinum – Guide Schweizer Schaumweine (12 | 2010) CH
La Côte AOC Apex (?)

“Dieser Schaumwein – aus Chardonnay und Pinot Noir erzeugt – macht à priori neugierig: Was für einen Typus bringt einer der besten Chasselas-Produzenten des Landes in die Flasche? Sehr dezenter Duft, Apfel- und feine Biskuitnoten; “melodiös” im Mund, rassig und direkt, elegante Mousse. Schnörkellos und comme il faut!”
