Nowack Champagne "La Tuilerie" Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut (2014)

The Nowack family domaine is located in the Vallée de la Marne, in the village of Vandières. The domaine traces its roots back to 1795. The most current generations are Frédéric and his son Flavien. When Flavien decided to join into the family business in 2011, his father "gave" Flavien 3.5 hectares to farm how he wanted, and produce the wines that he wanted. That total is now up to 6.5 hectares. If you visit the Nowack domaine today, you see two different line-ups, the first produced by dad, and then Flavien's Champagne.

Nowack's vineyards are farmed organically. He farms physiologically ripe grapes, so he never chaptalizes. He is also part of the growing movement of producers that use the natural yeast of unfermented grape must as a "prise de mousse" for the secondary fermentation in bottle.

La Tuilerie is a single Southwest facing parcel of Chardonnay in the village of Vanières (right bank of the Marne). The soil is composed mainly of sand and limestone on marl.

Fermentation occurred in vats without filtration, and was aged in used 228 liter barrels. After its secondary fermentation, the wine was aged on its lees in bottle for 36 months.

This beautiful Champagne doesn't have high bars of pressure. It is soft and round, with citrus and mineral notes, incredibly bright acidity, and a complex, long finish.
