(2020) This is Pinot Nero (Noir) with a little Pinot Meunier that spends between 18 and 24-months on the lees. It pours a pale, fresh colour, the nose very delicately scented with a touch of white flowers, cool citrus fruit and just a small suggestion of a more biscuity character. On the palate it is dry and riven with citrus acidity, lemon and a touch of lime, cool and firm on the mid-palate, certainly on the dry and mouthwatering spectrum, very clean and crisp.
(2020) This is 'Pas Dosé', otherwise known as zero dosage, with no sweetening dosage added after disgorgement. Made from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the decision on which parts of the harvest are directed towards the Cuvée More Brut or Pas Dosé is based based on blind tasting. A lovely nose on this, again the autolysis showing nicely with some yeasty complexity, pear and citrus peel. In the mouth there is no sense of austerity - it is bone dry, yes, with a bracing salty acidity emphasised by the lack of dosage, but the sweetness of fruit balances in a most satisfying style.
