A richer and drier style of Champagne, with an almost peppery aroma. This is excellent boutique champagne from a young independent winemaker.
Brut Nature is when no dosage (sugar solution) has been added and therefore you get a very dry style of wine. Growing in popularity, it is often intended to be drunk with food as the super dry style accentuates many foods.
Rémi Leroy grew up in Meurville, a small town in the Côte des Bar. He trained as a oenologist and agricultural engineer in Bordeaux before taking over his 9ha family estate. In the past the family sold all their grapes to large houses, but Remi now vinifies around a third of the crop under his own label. The Aube area marks the southern extreme of the Champagne region, geographically and geologically it's closer to neighbour Chablis. He uses very low amounts of sulphur and has meticulous attention to detail.
