NV FRANCOIS SECONDE Integral Zero Dosage Grand Cru 75cl (Champagne, France)
Style - Sparkling
Grapes - 66% Pinot Noir 33% Chardonnay
Tasting - Steely dry but behind that is a beautiful wine that speaks of rock and chalk. Hewn out of the cooler north-east facing sites around Vezerney and Sillery Grand Crus this is a proper insiders bottle of Champagne.
FYI - The first wine auction that Christie's ever held in the 19th century contained a Champagne from Sillery, today an almost forgotten Grand Cru site.
ABV - 12%
