Francois Chidaine Méthode Traditionnelle Brut Nature 2008
The vineyard is run biodynamically. No chemical phytosanitary product is used. Melliferous or nematicidal plants or cereals are sown in the rows. The preparations used come only from the processed plant, animal and mineral materials. The soil is composed of clays and coarse elements of flint. The subsoil is made up of Tuffeau, a soft, white limestone rock through which the roots create a passage.
Winemaking and Maturation
After pressing, the alcoholic fermentation is carried out by native yeasts in demi-muids, pieces of wood with a capacity of 620 litres. It can last up to six months. “Malolactic fermentation” is not sought. The prize de mousse is carried out in our cellars. The bottles remain on slats for at least 12 months.
Francois Chidaine’s Brut Nature is bright yellow colour with a nose of white flowers and some notes of citrus. Excellent minerality and length with nice richness.
