"Lots of pinot character to this, with dried-strawberry, citrus and some salt and chalk character. Full-bodied, tight and spicy. Lots of driving acidity and firmness at the end. Tensioned. Multi-vintage with a large part of 2008. Disgorged in July 2021. Dosage 0g/L. Unfiltered. Drink now or hold."

"The NV Brut Nature Les Houtrants Complantés is a multi-vintage field blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier, Chardonnay, Petit Meslier and Arbane from the Houtrants lieu-dit. Airy in feel, yet also energetic, the Houtrants is utterly beguiling. Lemon peel, almond and white flowers are beautifully lifted. In this range, the Houtrants stands out for its weightless, totally understated personality. It is such a unique and inviting wine. Bottling at 3.5 atmospheres of pressure (as opposed to the more typical 5-6) gives the Houtrans its soft contours. This is the 2012 bottling."
