Made with the Traditional Method
Davy Dosnon blends a small amount of Alliae each year usually from a single vintage. Roughly equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that has been aged in 228L French oak barriques from Puligny-Montrachet. After aging on the lees for a minimum of 50 months, Alliae is disgorged released as a Brut Nature with no added sugar.
Alliae is the most vinous Champagne of the lineup showing the creamy texture and richness chardonnay married to the structure and finesse of Pinot Noir and then deepened with extra aging on the lees.
This is an excellent quality wine that offers a remarkable clear, bright, fresh and deep aroma of white fruits and just a kiss of oak. Full-bodied, clear and well structured on the palate this is a very elegant and promising Champagne of purity and complexity…’ ‘’Ideal for those who can’t choose between burgundy and champagne.’’
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety’s intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the “winemaker’s wine”.
The Champagne region combines specific climate, soil and topography conditions that form a unique terroir which is currently used by approx. 15 000 vine-growers and 300 wine houses.
The region consists of 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 that 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 flavour.
