Disgorged March 2019. Terre de Vertus 2013 is 100% chardonnay coming from the chalky 1er Cru plots of Les Barillers and Les Faucherets, mid-slope in the village of Vertus. After gently pressing the grapes, the juices go directly into wood with both the alcoholic and the malolactic fermentations beginning spontaneously. The wines are matured on natural lees during their first year, undergoing gentle bâtonnage. There is no filtering or fining prior to bottling and the wine is non-dosé or zero dosage (no sugar added), in order to respect its purity from beginning to end. Terre de Vertus has been non-dosé since the mid ’90’s, long before it was fashionable!
One of the most distinct wines of the entire Champagne region, Terre de Vertus 2013 shows the trademark briny minerality and linear finish of the wines from this village.
Best enjoyed from the Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Synergie 75 handmade glass.
Perfectly paired with creamy dishes or simply with freshly schucked oysters.
