Item No.: WDFC0182
Winery: Champagne Stroebel
Region(s): Champagne
Appellation: Coteaux Champenois
Variety: Pinot Meunier
Description: Based in the Premier Cru village of Villers Allerand, Timothée Stroebel works with only 3.5 ha of biodynamic farmed vineyards, choosing to make 12,000 bottles a year rather than sell off the beautiful fruit. The Stroebel vineyard is one of the best locations for Brut Nature in Champagne. The fruit shows ripeness, elegance and precision. Timothée makes Champagne in a minimal intervention manner, using no additives and natural malolactic or alcoholic fermentation. The wines are never cold stabilised and no dosage. The vines were planted in the 60's, consisting of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Tasting Note: A unicorn wine. Timothee is normally making exceptional organic champagne (also online) but this is an outrageous red. 100% Pinot Meunier, ripe and concentrated nose, black cherries, pepper, dried herbs, oregano. The palate is delicate and tense, a beautiful juice with fruit and flesh, extremely elegant. Suave character to it but with some underlying power and heft as well. Lovely texture. Great balance of red fruit with soil, a subtle stemmy quality, and young violets. Only a handful made for the world.
