Description & Technical Information
-
Leclerc Briant produce three single vineyard champagnes, collectively named 'Collection Les Authentiques'. Les Basses Prieres is a Blanc de Noirs champagne produced from a single 0.17 hectare plot in the Premier Cru rated village of Hautvillers. Just 1,800 bottles were produced.

Weather: 2014 saw a warm and dry spring leading to many predicting a later harvest in August, July was damp and cooler so the ripening process was slowed. September was warm and the grape varietals were ready to be picked in a close time. Picking was around ten days.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Hautvillers
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Disgorged: August 2018
Dosage: 2 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: On the nose, the first notes are of brioche and honeysuckle with cherry, blackcurrant and plum adding a hint of fruitiness. A nice, clean start on the palate with a soft, creamy effervescence followed by a mounting sensation of fleshy fruit under-pinned with good acidity reminiscent of pomelo and pineapple. The mid-palate is orchestrated around a marked chalky minerality that brings a touch of salinity and finesse on the tongue.
