This is Yann's extended-aging cuvée, receiving an additional year en tirage than the Brut Noir and zero dosage. The blend is composed of the same 50% pinot meunier, 35% chardonnay and 15% pinot noir from 20 different organically farmed plots spread across the communes of Courmas, Bouilly, Merfy, Chenay and Saint-Lumier-en-Champagne, all in the Montagne de Reims.
Fermentation is in steel followed by 6-8 months aging in the same before it is blended with 30% reserve wine and aged en tirage for 5-6 years. Instead of a traditional liquor dosage, the bottles are topped with a small amount of dry chardonnay fermented in oak.  Superb stuff; quirky and individual in that grower-y way, but feels guided by a purposeful and very, very talented artisan winemaker.
