Pascal Doquet 2006 Mont Aimé "Coeur de Terroir" Brut

This site is east of Vertus and it faces directly south. Even so, it is a cooler microclimate than Pascal’s parcels in Le Mesnil and Vertus and ripening here can happen a week later. Previous vintages were fermented in tank to support the racy, linear style of the wine, but in this vintage, Pascal chose to ferment half in neutral barrel and half in enamel, which brings out a cool blueberry and smoky characteristic common to flinty, silex soils. It was disgorged in Summer 2015 and has 4.5 grams dosage, MCR.
