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 the agriculture of the company 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 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).
Straw yellow color with fine perlage. On the nose incisive and full of citrus, floral, spicy and musk scents. The taste is complex and dry, with a strong verticality and a very long persistence.
Ideal pairings: smoked fish, risotto with vegetables or seafood and fish dishes.
