Blanc de Noirs Brut, Louis Van't Hooghof
Bubbles • Heuvelland • Belgium • 100% Pinot Noir
Blanc de Noirs Brut, Louis Van't Hooghof, Heuvelland, Belgium,
Today, UpperWine has found a new Belgian domain that you should follow in the future and we let you pre-order the very first bottles.
Thierry Niziolek has found a beautiful plot of 1.5 hectares on the terroirs of Heuvelland. The 9,000 vines per hectare are planted on sandy clay soil with iron slag. The Pinot Noir is grown with the greatest respect for nature.
The harvest is carried out manually in small crates to preserve the grapes as much as possible. The rest takes place in the cellar next to the plot. The pressing is done under low pressure to gently extract the juice. The vinification takes place in stainless steel barrels. This beautiful bubble promises to compete with the greatest champagne.
In the glass we have very fine bubbles with a light golden colour. In the nose we first have nice notes of apples and quinces that then evolve into slightly buttery and brioche notes. In the mouth the attack is very fresh, broad, but also with a lot of finesse. Everything is nicely balanced with a long, mineral finish. It’s a bubble that you can serve as an aperitif, but it will also sublimate crustaceans or raw fish.
UpperWine offers you the opportunity to preorder this exceptional bubble exclusively and in a limited quantity of 6 bottles per customer.
Delivery in the week of December 14th.
