Vouette & Sorbee N.V. Champagne Brut Nature "Blanc d'Argile", Aube
Still a touch under the mainstream radar but Vouette & Sorbee have garnered the kind of cult status that has there wines looped in with the likes of Agrapart and Selosse. The vineyards for this 100% Chardonnay based Champagne are certified organic and biodynamic and have been since 1998, so these are some of the healthiest soils in all of Champagne. Closer to Chablis is style and soil type this is a very mineral driven wine that still has tons of weight and texture. Herbal, tree fruits like apple and pears with a kiss of peach in graham cracker crust with a scrape of lime zest. So long and layered the wine keeps unfolding in the glass. On the nerdy end but oh-so wicked cool.
