FRANCIACORTA DOCG
AU CONTRAIRE PAS DOSÉ 2008
Oeil de perdrix – Degorgement 2022

Recent disgorgement of Riserva Au Contraire 2008. 955 bottles refined in the cellar for thirteen years, in search of the maximum expression of the blend of chardonnay (60%) and pinot noir (40%).
Vinification in steel tanks (80%) and barrels (20%). No malolactic fermentation.
Although pinot noir has never been one of our most phenomenal wines...this was a revelation.
