Clandestin Les Grandes Lignes Brut Nature is a sparkling wine made by Clandestin with the Chardonnay variety in the AOC Champagne (France).
The Clandestin winery is run by Bertrand Gautherot from Vouette & Sorbée and the young entrepreneur Benoît Doussot. They are both expert connoisseurs of the Champagne area and they are the perfect partnership when it comes to showcasing the region’s most hidden and secret places through high-quality sparkling wines.
Clandestin Les Grandes Lignes Brut Nature is the perfect example of this. This champagne is made from a single 42-hectare plot lying 234 metres above sea level with 20-35 year old vines planted on clay-calcareous soils. The vines are ecologically cultivated with ECOCERT organic certification and using biodynamic treatments. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.
In the winery, the Clandestin Les Grandes Lignes Brut Nature grapes are fermented with native yeasts and the wine is aged for 10 months in a neutral French oak demi-muid. It then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle with a minimum aging of 24 months on lees before disgorging. No dosage is added.
Made by two of the region’s renowned winemakers, Clandestin Les Grandes Lignes Brut Nature is a sparkling wine with character. A fresh and pure blanc de blancs champagne with no dosage.
