Francoise Bedel Entre Ciel et Terre 百代香檳天與地
The NV Brut Entre Ciel Et Terre is a refined wine laced with perfumed peaches, apricots, smoke, flowers and mint. This mid-weight yet generous Champagne offers gorgeous depth and richness, with a long, refined finish. The Ciel et Terre shows more than enough complexity and nuance to offer fine drinking now and over the next few years. Though labeled a NV wine, Entre Ciel Et Terre is a single-vintage wine (in this case 2003), 41% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 24% Meunier that spent 12 months in oak and was bottled with 4 grams of dosage. This is Lot # EB990208, disgorged in February, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
Francoise Bedel farms roughly eight hectares of biodynamically-certified vineyards, a practice she adopted in the late 1990s.
