About
Dosnon Récolte Noire Zero Dosage NV is a distinctly dry (zero dosage) Champagne, crafted from select Pinot Noir grapes originating from the Aube, a notable region within Champagne, France known for its exceptional terroir. This non-vintage cuvée stands out for its absence of added sugar after disgorgement, offering a pure, unadulterated expression of the Pinot Noir grape and the unique characteristics of its vineyard origins. Emphasizing Dosnon's dedication to showcasing the natural qualities of their grapes and the influence of the Aube's terroir, this Champagne delivers an experience that is both refined and intensely authentic.
Producer
Arriving in Champagne, Davey Dosnon was impressed by Burgundy and decided to locate his wine house in Aube, 40 km from Chablis. As the taste of the wine, especially Recolte Blanche, shows, the terroir has more in common with Burgundy than Champagne. In Burgundy, Dosnon collaborates with Rossignol-Trapet, and in Champagne with Serge Mathieu and Moutard Père et Fils. The winery was founded in 2009. Dosnon owns two hectares of vineyards in Avira Lange, and in addition, he buys grapes from the 5 hectares of vineyards that are located next to his winery (therefore they have N.M. status). 50,000 bottles are produced annually. All champagne is fermented in small, previously used barriques, and then aged for 20–45 months. The habit of aging wine in barriques also comes from Burgundy.
Tasting notes

Tasting notes for Dosnon Récolte Noire Zero Dosage NV reveal a vibrant and complex array of flavors, including crisp green apple, lemon zest, and a hint of minerality, complemented by subtle notes of brioche and almond from its time spent aging on the lees.

Pairing

Pinot Noir has very aromatic profile, very fresh acidity and low level of quaite soft tannins. The nature of Pinot Noir wine is its flavors of red berries and cherry (red sour cherries in lighter wines and cooked black cherries in bold examples). This wine matures very exating, developing notes of berry jam, violets, leather, moss and mushrooms.
The Champagne region combines specific climate, soil, and topography conditions that form a unique terroir currently used by approx. 15 000 vine-growers and 300 wine houses. The region has 4 sub-regions - Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Vallée de la Marne, and Côte des Bar. Each provides customers with a different style of sparkling wine. The dominant grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which are mainly used in Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne, while Chardonnay shows excellent results in Côte des Blancs. The region is even more appealing because of the so-called "Growe's Champagne" wines, the production of which is overseen by one family from start to finish - they grow and press grapes, make wine, and bottle it in the territory of one wine house. This gives the wine a true charm, aura, and unique flavor.
