Paul Nicolle Cremant de Dourgogne NV
Grape: Pinot Noir
Region: Burgundy, France
The domaine Paul Nicolle is firmly rooted in the village of Fleys, a winemaker village in the middle of the vines located just four kilometers from the town of Chablis. The Nicolle family traces their history in Fleys back to the late 19th century. The domaine was originally created by Paul Nicolle in the 1950s, and was then revived by his grandson Charly many decades later. The domaine has long applied integrated farming methods and is committed to sustainable agriculture through the HVE (High Environmental Value) certification. Paul Nicolle is a classically styled domaine that consistently produces delicious wines each year that are both typical of Chablis and true to their own style. Before taking over the family domaine, Charly worked for a few years in the Aube, the southernmost part of Champagne that borders on Burgundy and is a short way from Chablis. With his experience working in Champagne, Charly always wanted to produce his own sparkling wine and jumped at the chance to acquire a small vineyard in Molosmes, on the border with Champagne. The domaine is one of the few that produces their own Crémant entirely in house from start to finish, including aging, riddling, and disgorging each bottle by hand.
Food Pairing: Will be a great fit for aged cheeses, grilled seafood, lighter pasta dishes.
