This way-under-the-radar Champagne discovery is yet another over-achiever from the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Pertois-Lebrun grows Chardonnay in Cramant, Le Mesnil-SurOger, Chouilly, Oiry, and Oger, all five of which are Grand Cru villages in the Côtes des Blancs. The team of Antoine and Celement Bouret take meticulous care in the treatment of their vines in order to express all of the Chardonnay grapes’
nuances and subtleties, while at the same time reflecting the diversity and unique characteristics of 44 plots. They have reduced synthetic inputs to a minimum (including the total elimination of herbicides and insecticides), ploughing and grassing the soil and giving preference to organic fertilizers. “L’Extravertie” is great introduction to the house and is a stunning value to boot. Based on the 2014 vintage Champagne combining freshness, lightness and finesse. Perfect for any occasion, it will delight you during any special moment. The L’extravertie is made only with grapes from Grand Cru terroirs (Le Mesnil-surOger, Chouilly and Oiry) and cultivated according to a sustainable viticulture...
