80% Pinot Meunier, 16% Pinot Noir, 4% Chardonnay
Reliance Brut Nature is a cuvée built with the spirit of creating links between people ("relier les gens entre eux” in french). The idea is to create an accessible, easy to share and enjoyable Champagne without any dosage. How we do it: yields 50% lower than neighbors, high maturity of grape, grape-tasting to decide when we harvest with our 32 harvesters (all hand-harvested), preserve the balance during vinification due to natural yeasts for fermentation, spontaneous malolactic fermentation, no oenologic adds, no fining, no cooling, no filtration. On average, this cuvée rests 6 years in our cellar on the lees. The result: Reliance has fruitiness, finesse and elegance. The fruity, smooth, and round matter is supported by tension, giving balance. The end is very precise, vibrant and mineral with a long finish.
