Product description

MARQUISE DE MOULBAIX - 'Blanc de Blancs' Brut Millésimé 2020 - Ath - Belgium

 
Marquise de Moulbaix 'Blanc de Blancs' Brut Millésimé 2020 from the province of Hainaut not far from Ath is a fine, elegant sparkling wine full of finesse and mineral aromas obtained from the autolysis as in the 'méthode traditionnelle'. In the mouth a subtle texture with a balanced acidity ending with a mineral aftertaste.
 
The only difference with Champagne is that on this domain the grapes are pruned higher and planted wider than in Champagne. The reasoning is simple: a soil survey revealed that the subsoil is argilolimoneux, meaning it is quite vigorous and moist. The rootstocks for the chardonnay are therefore S04, which tempers the vigor. Growing the grapes a little higher also reduces the risk of damage from spring frost.

All further steps are done as in Champagne. The malolactic conversion is applied so that the sharp malic acid is converted into softer lactic acid. The dosage is modest at 7g per liter and the wine is aged sur lie for at least fifteen months.

Champagne connoisseur Peter Doomen describes this sparkling wine as follows:

“Marquise de Moulbaix Blanc de Blancs 2020 opens with a yeasty scent with citrus fruits. Later the aroma changes to peach. The acids are tight and the aftertaste, which is more than decent, shows some white pepper. Compared to champagne, this is the fresh millésimé style. Adding reserve wines in the coming years will give this fine wine even more depth and length, but for a first harvest this is the nail on the head.”
