R.H. Coutier Brut Grand Cru

You would be hard pressed to find a better value in Grower Champagne than this!!

Wine Spectator 92pts:

The firm acidity is finely meshed in this seamless Champagne, with a rich note of chalky minerality underscoring the creamy palate's flavors of chopped almond, black currant, fleur de sel and candied lemon zest.

From the importer:

Vineyard: 70% Pinot, 30% Chardonnay and 100% estate-fruit from Ambonnay, one of the largest Grand Cru villages. The Coutier family was the first family to plant Chardonnay in this famed Pinot-centric village.

Orientation: Vineyards in Ambonnay face due south, producing a warmer microclimate for the grapes.

Soil: Ambonnay soils have more clay and a bit less limestone than is typical throughout the region.

Viticulture: The Coutiers practice "lutte raisonnée", a method of viticulture which encourages biodiversity and soil health. Coutier ploughs, uses no herbicides and grows grass between rows.

Vinification: 2011 base vintage, with some reserve from previous vintages. Stainless steel; 100% malolactic.Aging: 6 grams dosage. Disgorged May 2014.

Notes: An excellent and racy bottle with the signature red fruit characteristics of Ambonnay. 6 grams dosage, disgorged May 2014.
