Solera Champers that keeps it real.
This bottle of bubbly is Ruppert-Leroy’s only non vintage cuvée, composed of a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This blend was aged in a solera with three vintages featured in this release. Dip into a soft and sensuous bath of bubbles with aromas of lime, exotic spice and a searing mineral backbone.
Bénédicte Leroy’s parents moved to Essoyes in 1975 and started a small farm on a clearing, located above the town where they raised sheep.
- They started planting grapes in the 1980s for sheep to graze on, and eventually started selling their fruit to local cooperatives.
- All wines are vinified with natural yeasts from their grapes and are unfined, unfiltered, with no liqueur de tirage added.
- The wines are aged on lees in bottles for 18-20 months.
- Solo cup drinking.
- Fried Jalapeño poppers.
- Take out from KFC, Chick fil a, or Popeyes – choose wisely.
