2010 Alice Beaufort "Le Petit Beaufort" Grande Reserve,750ml

Availability: In stock (3)

Crisp, mineral-driven sparkling white from just outside of the boundaries of the Champagne region. Other than being beyond the delimiting line, this is Champagne wine, made with all the same processes. All Chardonnay, grown organically in one of the coldest micro-climates of France. Lightly sulfured to prevent oxidation, ferments in barrel for 30 months then on the lees in bottle before disgorgement. Fantastic and at an exceptional price as it doesn't bear the appellation's name.

Notes from the importer (Jenny & Francois):

"Domaine Alice Beaufort is a continuation of the work of the prestigious Champagne house, André et Jacques Beaufort, one of the longest running Champagne houses to cultivate vines organically, since 1971. The vines of le Petit Beaufort sits just outside the official Champagne appellation area, very close to the Aube region in Southern Champagne. Quentin Beaufort, son of Jacques, named the domaine after his wife Alice. They use the same methods Quentin learned from his father to make wines of exceptional quality from a virtually unheard of terroir."
