L'Atavique received the coveted 'Coup de Couer' award as one of the wines of the year for the prestigious 'La Revue des Vins de France' Guide Vert for 2018!
“Atavique (Atavistic): Atavism: recurrence in the descendant of one or several characteristics typical to one of its ancestors.”
All fruit sourced from their biodynamic vineyards in the Grand Cru of Verzy. A blend of 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay of which 25% has been vinified in oak . (75% 2014 base wine, with 25% reserves from 2013-2012) Dosage 2g/litre
Lifted aromatics of red fruits, woodsmoke, brioche and spice. The palate is creamily textured, dry yet perfectly balanced, showing a super fine, integrated bead from the slow primary fermentation. The finish is long, complex and possesses a core of minerality. The Montagne des Reims is renowned for the high quality of the Pinot Noir grown throughout. The Grand Cru village of Verzy is unique whereby Pinot Noir is predominant towards the west of the village while to the east, outstanding Chardonnay is also produced. This allows the wines of Verzy to possess signature characters of finesse, balance and richness. This is wonderful introduction to the wines of Mouzon-Leroux Vinification - Natural fermentation using indigenous yeasts, malolactic fermentation allowed to limit the use of sulphur, no filtration or fining.
