David Leclapart has a total of 3 hectares in 22 different plots, which are divided into the municipality of Trepail, Premier Cru of the Montagne de Reims. Upon his father’s death, David returned to the company only on one condition: to conduct all of the company’s agriculture to biodynamics, without compromise – for him the only way to respect and highlight the natural characteristics of the champagne and the terroir. The choice of never dosing any champagne is also difficult, an aspect that highlights the slightest stylistic imperfection. It is one of those that in recent years has suffered the most from problems related to climatic trends, in fact Artiste and other products will no longer be released until 2024.
It follows the principle of biodynamics, performs malolactic fermentation and the second fermentation takes place in the bottle with a stay on the lees for at least 24 months before disgorgement. No added sulfites.
Intense straw yellow color with fine perlage. On the nose notes of small yellow and citrus fruits, floral and caramelized notes. The taste is fresh, structured, mineral, expressive with a persistent finish.
It goes well with fish dishes, risotto with vegetables or seafood.
