Barrat Masson Fleur de Craie Extra Brut is a single-variety Chardonnay champagne made by the Barrat Masson winery in Champagne, France.
Barrat Masson Fleur de Craie Extra Brut is a “blanc de blancs”, made only with the Chardonnay white variety. The bunches come from a 40-year-old vineyard with “fleur de craie” (chalk soils) and the vines are cultivated according to the principles of organic agriculture with ECOCERT certification.
85% of the bunches ferment in stainless steel tanks and the remaining 15% ferment in barrels of different ages. The base wine is aged on its lees for around 9 months. It is naturally cold stabilised. Barrat Masson Fleur de Craie Extra Brut goes through a 30-month aging in stacks. The champagne is manually disgorged (à la volée).
Barrat Masson is a joint project set up in 2010 by Aurélie and Loïc, two winemakers who love vines and wine and are very keen to produce quality champagnes. That is why they work their vineyards with total respect for nature and for their terroir so that the champagnes they produce reveal their full personality without any masks.
