Champagne Dosnon Blanc de Noirs '' Recolte Noire'' Zero Dosage
Dosnon owns 2 hectares of his own in Avirey-Lingey, and purchases 5 ha. of fruit from the immediate vicinity as well (hence the N.M. status). This brings the annual production up to 50,000 bottles. All champagnes undergo initial fermentation in small, used barrique casks and are then matured for 20-45 months, also in used barrique. The preference for aging in barrique casks also comes from Burgundy.
Vivid flavors of ground spice and graphite are layered with hints of crunchy pear, crushed white raspberry fruit, lemon zest, spun honey and chamomile in this mouthwatering Champagne, which is refined, chalky in texture and harmonious, with a long, lingering finish of rich grilled nut, coffee and spice.
