ASSEMBLAGE / BLENDING
Traditionally, the three varieties of grapes of the Champagne region, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, rising from different crus, terroirs, and years, are brought together to create a Brut sans année.
However, we at la Maison Dosnon wanted to take a different direction, one which diverges from this assemblage type. Always careful to respect the search for the purest expression of the terroir, we blend reserve wines at 100% of each of the two noble varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to create unique Cuvées mono cépages who epitomize la Côte des Bar.
A composition of the two varieties is, however, reserved for the production of the Cuvée Extra-Brute « Récolte Brute » as well as for the Grande Cuvée « Alliance », being composed of 50/50 of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in order to achieve a perfect balance.
Each year, we select the best, vins clairs from past vintages to be reserved.
These reserve wines are conserved in oak barrels to guarantee both the harmony and complexity of champagne wines.
