Cuvée L'Inconnu (meaning the unknown) is made from a single vintage, single vineyard, single block in the traditional Méthode Champenoise. The fruit was harvested in the foggy, early morning hours from clone 115, and is 100% Pinot Noir. The smaller than usual grapes were lightly pressed with stems in our vintage Coquard press directly into stainless steel tank. The juice fermented there, then was racked to a 2nd tank where it rested 12 months. July 2016, we put it through its secondary fermentation and capped it. It rested on the lees for 6 years. In summer 2022, we began the disgorging process, topped off with the same vintage, sans dosage (no sugar added).
