2013 Charles Dufour 'Bistrotage' Champagne

Champagne, France

Charles Dufour is making jaw-dropping bubbles off the beaten track in Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir. Zero sulphur, tiny amounts of dosage. A little oxidative on nose at first, but then ripe citrus and kumquat. Yeasty and berries, then white flower, wet stone and a perfume at the back. Tight acidity with driving minerality and fine bubbles. With a long family history in Champagne, Charles's drive when joining the family business is one that is hands-off yet relentless pursuit for perfection. Both the taste of the fruit and the delicacy of the bubbles showcases this perfectly.

2013 Charles Dufour 'Bistrotage' Champagne
About the maker

A young grower and winemaker, farming 6 certified organic hectares in Landreville in Côtes des Bars, Charles comes from a family steeped in winemaking tradition off this beaten track in the Champagne region.

Organically certified in 2010, it was only when Charles joined the family business that he decided they needed a change to their approach of agriculture. Logically, the crafting of the champagne follows the same goal for purity and integrity in throughout. No enrichment of must, alcoholic fermentation with only indigenous yeasts, no filtration or clarification of the sparkling wine bases and most importantly no sulphur. The result is beautiful wines of great character, grit and impeccable taste.
