Eric Asimov writes:  (Reviewed December 27, 2022) Most cooperatives in Champagne make large amounts of routine wines, primarily for supermarkets. Chavost is an anomaly. It’s a small cooperative that produces natural wines, made without commercial yeasts or any additions, even sulfur dioxide, the widely used stabilizer and antioxidant. It’s a risky approach, but the results are excellent. This cuvée is primarily chardonnay, with 20 percent pinot meunier and 3 percent pinot noir. It’s bone-dry and chalky, well-balanced and deliciously refreshing.   - New York Times

 

Jaw-droppingly pure aromas of freshly cut green apple, white peach, Anjou pear, Rainier cherry, crushed chalk, and wet rock.

This is a tantalizing, deeply refreshing champagne brimming with energy and a crystalline purity.
