Cork Aging VS Crown Seal Aging Pack
For once only, we have requested Agnes Corbon to bottle to version of 2009 'Les Bacchantes' for us, one in cork, one in crown seal. This is absolutely the rare and the only chance to taste a champagne aged in cork (the ancient practice).
The packs contains one bottle each of the followings:
2009 Champagne Corbon Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 'Les Bacchantes' (age with cork) (with a letter D on the label)
2009 Champagne Corbon Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 'Les Bacchantes' (age with crown seal)
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Terroir: Grand Cru Avize, Côte des Blancs, Champagne
Winemaking: 2009 vintage, fermented in oak barrels, full malo-lactic fermentation, aged 6.5 years on lees, no fining, no filtration, no cold-stabilization, disgorged Feb 2017 with 5 g/l dosage. After the aging in cork or crown seal for 6.5 years on lees, the Champagne are finally bottled with a cork. But we can still see the different shapes of the bottle's mouth.
