Roger Barnier L’Oublieé Solera Champagne

£49.99

Solera Champagne? What on earth is that? L’Oublieé means ‘the forgotten barrels’. The cellar master had forgotten about a number of barrels which were found years later at the back of the cellar. The barrels were combined and co-fermented in a very large barrel to produce a blend of many years, and with the first draw of bottles will then be topped up each year in exactly the same way sherry achieves its complexity.

With a base wine from 2005 and another eight vintages blended in, Brut Nature refers to the extra dry profile of the Champagne. A rich and complex wine, it has a full and fruity nose with the blend of years providing a spectrum of fruits, particularly peaches and cream. The wine is mouth-coating and fantastic with food due to its crisp profile and length in the mouth.

    About the producer:

    Roger Barnier set out on the task of producing a Champagne that was not only for drinking, but also as something gastronomic, to complement and enjoy with food. Five generations of winemakers later, Roger Barnier’s development his own cuvées and style is still present in the current range.

    The champagne house operates 8 hectares of vineyards spread over 35 of their own plots, located in several villages of Champagne. They believe in sustainable vineyard practises, in respecting the land and the earth, manual picking of the grapes for the gentlest of handling, and parcel separation of grapes during the winemaking process for great rare and unique Champagne wines.

    The jewel in the crown of this producer is not just that the grapes are all their own (which is quite rare), but the age of their vines. As well as growing the more famous Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, they consider themselves experts in Pinot Meunier and have vines that still produce grapes dating back all the way to 1910. Their flagship cuvee is 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne and lists the actual ages of every vine that contributes to Roger Barnier’s ongoing gastronomic legacy.
