Champagne L&S Cheurlin Coeur de Chevalier
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Siblings Lucie and Sébastien Cheurlin (L&S) are based in Celles-sur-Ource, a pretty commune in the heart of the Côte des Bar region of Champagne. Here they carry on the family winemaking tradition first established by their grandfather André Cheurlin, working their 5 hectares of vines organically with some biodynamic preparations. These are vivid, terroir driven grower Champagnes with striking precision and finesse.
Coeur de Chevalier is a special extra brut cuvée made from two parcels; 20 year old Chardonnay in Celles-sur-Ource and 50 year old Pinot Noir in Merrey-sur-Arce. The current cuvée is based on the 2017 vintage and underwent 5 years of lees ageing before disgorgement. Incredible tension and purity with mouth-watering apple and citrus fruit, very fine bubbles and tremendous drive.
