R. Pouillon Solera Brut Premier Cru
The idea of this cuvée is to erase the influence of vintage and focus solely on terroir. It is 50% each chardonnay and pinot noir and all from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Every year, 30% is racked off for secondary fermentation; it is aged sur latte prior to disgorgement at which point 30% new wine is added. Deep golden in color and sporting a fine mousse, the nose delivers aromas of wisteria, fresh baguette, Doyenne pears, and a touch of mocha.
