Coteaux Champenois Rouge d'Ambonnay Cuvee Athenais

From a third of a hectare of old vines planted in 1905. Xavier remains true the ideas for his Champagnes – that is to say he is seeking full ripeness, and the wine is all aged in barrel. A deep colour and bright cherry fruit, with a spicy overlay and pure silky feel. Long on red berry and pure Pinot juice. Hypnotic, dense, ripe, strawberry-tinged and rarely-made red wine – from 97-year old Pinot Noir vines grown on the steepest slopes of Ambonnay – among the best still wines of Champagne.
