    The backstory is fun, but the wine really sings in the glass. Incredibly clean, easy drinking champagne with a complexity underneath it all you can choose to pay attention to, or not depending on the moment. Top end saline quality with spiced pear and apples brushing against the baked, bready finish that is medium length but incredible satisfying.

    The interesting name refers to the exceptional fact that this is a rare Champagne grown completely on vines with their original French roots - meaning that these vines are ungrafted because they escaped the scourge of phylloxera with the help of the extremely sandy soils on this site. It’s 100% Pinot Noir, 100% barrel fermented, and 0 dosage. The nose is fresh with ripe pear and orange blossom. The palate offers deeper complexity with baking spices, salty minerality, and fizzy lemon drops.

    Meaning "of the French foot", this wine is a tribute to the French rootstocks that sit on the base of the vines. They survived phylloxera in their sandy soils and did not need to undergo grafting to American rootstocks. There are very few ungrafted vineyard Champagnes available today and quite a rare occurrence. 100% barrel fermented Pinot Noir with zero dosage, this comes from a single plot and is very limited in its production. Truly a beautiful, artisinal wine from our newest direct import, this is a special bottling.
