Overview

Récolte Noire is a Blanc de Noirs made entirely from Pinot Noir with a minimum of two years aging in the bottle and with a dosage around 5g/L. While most growers would put a Blanc de Noirs at the end of a tasting of their Champagnes Davy puts it near the start as Pinot on Kimmeridgian soils is delicate, filigreed and mineral. The Récolte Noire certainly has all those characteristics along with a toastiness and elegance of fruit that resembles fresh raspberry or strawberry. Davy states that the refined fruitiness in his wines is from fermenting the base wine in used Puligny-Montrachet barrels which makes sense as he learned his trade in Burgundy.
