Les 7 – Solera 2005-2014

$150.00

18% Pinot Meunier, 18% Chardonnay; 17% Pinot Blanc, 15% Petit Meslier; 14% Pinot Noir, 10% Fromenteau 8% Arbanne Organic: Certified Biodynamic: All seven indigenous grape varieties co-planted by Thierry Laherte in a 1.7 hectares parcel behind the winery in Chavot. This was intended to add to the heritage of the winery and serve as a “test plot” for better understanding the character and potential of the individual varieties. Chalky-clay soils with the presence of pebbles. Viticulture: Farmed organically with biodynamic influences. Soils are worked with a horse and plow. Natural alcoholic fermentation in neutral Burgundy barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Blend of 60% current vintage and 40% : continous solera that was started in 2005. Aging: 6 month elevage with regular stirring of the lees. Light filtration before bottling in spring. Dosage is 4 gr/l; disgorged by hand. This is a singular wine in the region as it is both a combination of all seven grape varieties AND 40% of the blend is from a continous solera started in 2005. There is an art to finding an acid and sugar balance across all seven grape varieties when determining picking dates, which is a challenge that Aurelien embraces and appreciates. The resulting wine is dense, rich, racy and endlessly pleasing. AG: Intensely perfumed and bright, Les 7 showcases striking interplay of aromas, flavors and textures. Citrus, white orchard fruit and sweet, perfumed overtones all develop in the glass.
