Pouillon Champagne "Les Valnons" Extra-Brut, Aÿ '10

Its full name, Les Valnons Froid Cul, is a stunning site situated on a cold, famous hill in Aÿ, enjoying Grand Cru status. One of Pouillon's unmistakable traits can be found in this bottling; Aÿ is prized for its Pinot Noir, but what do we see her? Chardonnay, quite unusual and rare indeed with only 8% of plantings in Aÿ dedicated to this grape. There is distinct richness, full of texture and mineral nerve from its chalky clay soils. Vinification takes place in oak barrels, of various ages. It was bottled in April 2011, and disgorged in Spring 2017. It's worth it to see why although Pinot Noir is highly suitable, the drive that Chardonnay is capable of, can still channel and work harmoniously, as well. This is why to understand terroir, the hand behind the wine is just as relevant as the earthly points that create beautiful, terroir-driven wines.
