Champagne, Eric Rodez "Empreinte Blanche" Brut 2009
At one point Eric Rodez was the mayor of Ambonnay, so dedicated was he to his home village. At another he worked in the cellars of Krug for a stretch, and his winemaking reflects it. Fermentation in oak, a mind-boggling blending of parcels equaling more than the sum of their parts, and extended lees aging lead to powerful, concentrated, and supremely focused Champagnes. The Empreinte series is his attempt to showcase the very best of the two varieties he works with, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The 2009 spent more than a decade and competes with the very best in all of Champagne. A special wine from a unique man. ~3g dosage.
