Product information "Henriet-Bazin Cuvée Marie-Amélie Millésime 2012 Brut Nature"
Nicolas: "It's our daughter's name. During the 2004 harvest, my wife Marie-Noëlle tried every must directly from the press, as she normally does. She had the feeling that three plots of old vines gave a very good taste: ripe, complex, elegant ... everything she loves. So she decided to let some of these pressings mature together. In February, during the base wine tastings, these plots confirmed that they had the potential to make a great vintage. Since my wife gave birth to our daughter in 2004 (December, so she was pregnant during the harvest), she naturally decided to dedicate this beautiful cuvée to her. Then, year after year, the vines continue to age and when the vintage gives it, Marie-Noelle still assembles this vintage.
The vines face east on a thin layer of silite with a base of gravel and pure chalk. The eastern exposure gives the balance between photosynthesis and minerality.
On the label is a girl, very well dressed, but with a natural style, because this cuvée is elegant, with finesse, but without makeup, only with the natural taste. The girl is carrying a bird cage, but the cage is open. It should show that we are open to nature and that nature should sing and express itself in a natural way. Life in nature is life. It is a metaphor for our method of taking care of the vines and the soil.”
