Pinot Noir｜Côtes de Bar, Champagne
Anyone can sell big-name bubbles like Bollinger, Dom Pérignon and the like. At Prologue, we work tirelessly to discover rare and unique offerings not found anywhere else. This exclusive offer on a truly magical Champagne is one of those.
South of the the well-traveled, main villages of Champagne lies the Côtes de Bar; this is where the Champagne cognoscenti look for the most exciting small Champagne houses. The region also boasts a high concentration of organic and biodynamic growers like Guy de Forez.
From the moment it's poured you'll be in love. It's an antiqued rose gold in the glass, hinting at the deep Pinot Noir extract. On the nose, it's quite "Burgundian," with a heady, perfumed, raspberry character followed by musky cardamom, vetiver, roses, and warm earth.
The palate is a one-two punch of ripe raspberry and crackling acidity. It's like raspberry sour candy, both ripe and intensely bright, bone-dry, and rocky. Our breath was taken away by its laser-intense acidity and minerality. Complementing the deep fruit is all that musky perfume and rosewater to finish.
Family-run, exclusive to Prologue, organic, and mind-bending good. One of the most expressive, unique Pinot Noir-based Champagne you’ll taste, period.
