$139.60

Description

The Brut Réserve de L'Hommée is a triumph of balance and precision.

L'Hommée is an ancient agricultural measurement equivalent to the surface of vines that a man could work in one day, roughly 3,33a (333m2).

The cuvée Réserve de l'Hommée has been created exclusively from terroirs which were once measured in this way.

It is a blend of 33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay from the Premier Cru terroirs of Vrigny and Pargny which has been aged on lees in oak barrels for 7 months.

After undergoing malolactic fermentation it is dosed at 6g/L and then enjoys a period of 5 years maturing in the Roger Coulon cellars before being presented.
