My Tasting Note (on the 2019): Medium-minus lemon yellow color, med+ mousse and medium bubbles persistence. The nose was med+ with chalky, pear and citrus driven fruits allied with light notes of honey, white florals, and lanolin, a very attractive yet subtle nose. The palate was medium bodied, with med/med+ acidity, and med+ flavor intensity. Finishes med+ and fresh, cleansing the palate.

Grape: Chenin Blanc
Dosage: 0g/L - Brute Nature
Terroir: Southeastern exposure, light, well-draining Turonian chalk soils with resurfacing limestone, yielding extremely low pH levels.
Vinification: Whole cluster pressing at low pressure, separation of first press and end-of-press must, ambient yeast fermentation, blocked malolactic fermentation, briefly aged in stainless steel tank, bottled in spring, further aging on lattes for 30 months, low dosage.

The term 'Physis' has ancient Greek philosophy origins, referring to the natural world as well as the concept of the natural growth of living things. Kim and Étienne honor this concept through a centuries old crémant legacy in Saumur, with it's signature tuffeau terroir. The porous and chalky nature of tuffeau soil allows the vine roots to penetrate seeking moisture from this moisture retaining soil.
