Unique ! In collaboration with Amphoris, a company specialized in underwater operations, champagne House Leclerc Briant created the Abyss cuvée, with the extraordinary 2012 harvest, which is specifically dedicated for underwater aging.
Grapes are selected for their famous chalky soils, in perfect harmony with the sedimentary marine basement of Stiff Bay, near Ouessant island in Brittany.
This outstanding cuvée is equally elaborated from Chardonnay of Bisseuil, Pinots noirs from Avenay-Val-d’Or and Pinot Meunier from Vrigny.
Exclusively sourced from the 2012 harvest, bottled in 2013, disgorged in February 2016 and then placed 60 meters depth up to May 2017, when it reached back the surface.
At first sight, this champagne shows fine and live bubbles, announcing a rich and fresh wine. On the nose, you discover a deep and concentrated sensation.
The palate is sharp and fresh, with a creamy effervescence. The champagne develops a fruity structure, underlined by a citrus acidity. The finish is harmonious and echoes the delicacy of limestone. The saline imprint is clearly noticeable.
The tasting demonstrates the perfect know-how of the house, revealing a sandy and mineral signature.
This cuvée is the ideal partner of Atlantic oysters, raw salmon or a grilled John Dory fish…
Cuvée Abyss 2012 from Maison Leclerc Briant is presented in its free box.
