Eric Rodez Empreinte Noire Extra Brut Vintage 2009 Champagne 75cl

Empreinte Blanche 2009 is 100% pinot noir, blended 6 grand cru parcels located in Ambonnay. Vinified entirely in small oak barrels, and given 10 years on lees, this is a powerful, complex and layered expression of Montagne de Reims pinot noir.

Eric Rodez owns 6.5ha of vineyards, all in Ambonnay, a famed grand cru in the Montagne de Reims, and farms without synthetic chemicals. He honed his winemaking and blending skills at Krug before rejoining his small family domaine, and is now one of the most respected grower-producers in Champagne.

Grape: Pinot Noir
A beautifully clear, mineral expression of Pinot Noir grapes with cherry and brioche aromas coming through. The palate is fresh and complex with hints of salt on the elegant finish.
<p>Eric Rodez has been producing Champagne since 1984 and has great experience in Burgundy and as Cellar Master at Krug where he was responsible for the Grande Cuvee. Incidentally, he is also the mayor of Ambonnay and a true advocate in promoting the quality of viticulture in Champagne. </p>
