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 10th September

The budding date predicted a normal year, with harvest in October, as usual in our region. But the time until the flowering has rarely been so short: only 49 days against 62.5 days on average thanks to hot and sunny weather!

So we started picking on September 10, with grapes of absolutely irreproachable quality and temperatures still frying 30 degrees. It was one of the nicest and longest summers ever recorded.

The fermentations went well. The last sugars turned into alcohol. Crucial stage, revealing the subtleties of the grape. Out of respect for work in the vineyard, we vinify in the same state of mind. In particular, by the use of native yeasts or the absence of sulfur, which makes us live adventures sometimes surprising … The tasting is daily. We monitor the wines with curiosity and interest, which allows us to gently guide each tank through temperature controls or transvases.

We are looking forward to seeing you again at our cellar to taste this 2018 vintage, which offers wines with body and very nice concentrations of aromas.

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.”

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!”
