Marie-Noëlle Ledru is (now almost was) one of the first producers of RM champagne and so-called vignerons.
In 1980 Marie-Noëlle took over the management of 6 hectares of vineyards in Ambonnay and Bouzy managed by her father at a family level since the 1960s, personally following with the help of a couple of farmers not only the vineyard but also the production, so much so that deserve the title of lady of pinot noir. In reality it is known in the Champenoise world that for some time (after the threshold of 70 years) Madame Ledru has leased part of her vineyards, halving production to devote herself only to two hectares of now forty-year-old vines, governed according to a reasoned viticulture made of copper, sulfur and manure treatments.
Pinot Noir 100%
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).
Golden yellow colour. It has an intense and complex bouquet, with notes of ripe fruit, citrus and yeasts. In the mouth, the wine is dry and harmonious, with a delicate effervescence and a pleasant freshness. The perlage is fine and persistent, giving a pleasant sensation of effervescence in the mouth.
It can be accompanied by fish, shellfish, cheeses, appetizers and desserts. Furthermore, it is perfect for celebrating special occasions or for an informal toast with friends.
