LA TERRE FORGÉE

Blanc de Blancs – Jarre – Vieilles Vignes

Parcellaire – Zéro dosage

‘La Terre Forgée’ is grown within a soil shaped by the human hand. Due to the nature of its container there are tiny porosities between this cuvée and the outside air. It moves, oxidizes, inside its jar, away from people’s eyes. It patiently takes shape and transcends Chardonnay into a unique model.

 

The use of jars for winemaking – a technique  used in Georgia as early as 5400 BC for still wine – is a very rarely used in Champagne and still uncommon in France. Champagne G. Richomme introduces a first in the southwest of the Marnais.

 

Two 305-litre Tuscan clay jars host the muss of the têtes de cuvées from a Chardonnay plot wine with low yield, 55 years old and south facing. The aim of this technique ? To release aromas thanks to the natural microoxygenation of the must during fermentation. Swayed by a gentle and perpetual motion, wine acquires delicacy, harmony and velvet.

Grape Variety : 100% Chardonnay

Terroir : Barbonne-Fayel

Plot : Les Grands Macrets

Material to Shape juice : Terracotta jar

Bottling : 2017

Dosage : 0 g/l

Drinking Temperature : Between 6°C and 8°C

 

Our cuvée La Terre Forgée has a very nice and shiny light straw yellow robe. Its bubbles are fine and persistent.

Its bouquet realease nice aromas of Golden Delicious, spices pepper as well as note of butter and reveals a beautiful complexity.

 

A lively and fresh attack on the palate is backbone of this wine. Its structure is elegant, full-bolied and nicely persistent.

 

A successful cuvée reserved for well-informed connoisseurs.

L'ARC-BOUTÉ

Blanc de Blancs – Brut

Oak Barrel – Selected Plot

This Blanc de Blancs cracks and spreads its gnarled and majestic branches in the oak barrels where it gets aged…

 

Once it is fixed into an object, L’Arc-Bouté continues to dialogue with its content for, although it was ‘fathered’ in the forest, it is now the happy father of another sap. Ode to oak barrels, actor of its own vinification, the very essence of this plot-selected Blanc de Blancs is reserved for shrewd connoisseurs.

 

Grape Variety : 100% Chardonnay 
Tête de cuvée – 75% 2015 harvest and 25% 2013 – 2014 reserve wines 
Terroir : Barbonne-Fayel 
Plot : Les Bæufs 
Oak Barrel 
Bottling : 2016 
Dosage : 6 g/l 
Drinking Temperature : between 6°C and 8°C

The yellow robe of L’Arc-Bouté and its bright tints are indicative of a nice and delicate wine, the effervescence forms a persistent foamy ring.

 

Once open this Blanc de Blancs releases aromas such as oak, vanilla and marzipan then its bouquet shows nice tension and energy thanks to Chardonnay’s citrus fruit flavour.

 

Having preserved a certain nobility, the transposed image is typified and evolves towards minerality and elegance. Aromas of lemon and vanilla over the tongue, notes of menthol and eucalyptus coupled with notes of mocha and cocoa give this Blanc de Blancs a pleasant finish.
