R. Pouillon & fils Solera Brut

The idea of this cuvée is to erase the influence of vintage and focus solely on terroir. It is 50% each chardonnay and pinot noir and all from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Every year, 30% is racked off for secondary fermentation; it is aged sur latte prior to disgorgement at which point 30% new wine is added. Up until the 2010 vintage was added, the entire Solera was aged in steel; it is now aged in oak uprights and undergoes full malolactic. Wisteria, blueberry, a hint of bitter chocolate and a lemony brightness. This is 1997-2012 with 5 grams MCR.
