2016 Huré Frères Blanc de Noirs 'l'Instantanée' Extra Brut
SKU: B530Regular price $84.95
Translating to ‘instant’, the vintage Instantanée cuvée has been produced annually, since 1995, to showcase a ‘snapshot’ of each year—a precious Polaroid for the palate. Previously made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Meunier, the 2013 vintage was the first release of Instantanée in the Blanc de Noirs style (made exclusively from black grape varieties).The 2016 vintage comprises mostly Pinot noir and a proportion of Meunier from the terroirs of Ludes and Rilly-la-Montagne, both Premier Cru villages in the Montagne de Reims. This Blanc de Noirs champagne expresses the verticality and freshness of the north-facing slope.
Aged for 6 years before release, Instantanée is traditionally finished with a dosage of 2–5 g/L.
