2013 GRAND VINTAGE "MILLE"
Coming Soon - September 2023 pre sale
"CRAFT CHAMPAGNE IN ITS MOST ARTISANAL, ELEGANT AND SOPHISTICATED FORM"
The grandest creation from Champagne Madame Zéro, the 2013 exclusive limited release of the highly anticipated tête du cuvee, “Mille."
The legacy and time-honored craft of 8 generations are an integral part of us skillfully refining the progressive style of our Grand Vintage, "Mille." We cultivate select plots from our 45 year old vines in Vertus. The composition includes the elegance and finesse of Chardonnay combined with the roundness, structure and body of Pinot Noir. A precise blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir combined with over 9 full years on fine lees reveals the ultimate expression of Vertus.
The name “Mille” comes from its French origin of 1,000. This limited release of Mille is only 1,000 bottles and every part of the process is done by hand with patience and precision. From hand picking the fruit onto the hand application of one of the most intricate and unique packages to brace the market, every process and detail of this cuvée is meticulous, reliant on the magic of time, and yields an incomparable result of finesse, balance and complexity.
"THE MOST VERSATILE AND EXPRESSIVE CUVÉE FROM OUR HOUSE"
A delightful nose of honeycomb, lemon zest and white flower. On the palate, extremely well structured with a silky mousse, chalky minerality and crisp acidity. The deep and elegant character is expressed with layers of stone fruits including peach and apricot, notes of fresh lemon, white raspberry and honeysuckle that persist on the long, elegant finish. The crisp acidity and fine structure of the wine will evolve with time and develop beautifully with 10 to 20+ years of cellaring.
