R. Dumont et Fils ‘Tradition’ Brut
90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay
Chalky minerality is apparent in the wine as this southern Champagne region has the same chalky soils as Chablis. Tart lemon, lime, citrus, and pink peppercorn.
The Dumont Brut NV is a blend of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay. The grapes from their vineyard have qualities that seem less aggressive and more sumptuous than those from the northern districts. In addition, vinification of whole berries at low temperatures enhances this quality of soft elegance. The NV is a blend of vintages typically between two and five years old. It is aged for two years on the lees before disgorgement. Dosage is 9 grams.
