Buxières-sur-Arce - Côte des Bar
Clandestin means “secret” or “hidden” in French, just like a speakeasy!
Born in 2017 from the hands of Benoit Doussot, a young Meursault- trained wine-maker, this negoce project is still brand new, under the radar and already a confidential reference for all the purists.
Following the trend of the growers bubbles, all the cuvées from Champagne Clandestin have this unique freshness and yet a staple of Brut Nature.
All the juices are from biodynamically grown grapes from the Côte des Bar, with no blend and special care to the details and differences between parcels of different expositions.
Champagne Clandestin in the bottle
Les Semblables Austral Brut Nature
Coming from different parcels all located in Buxières-sur-Arce with a Southern exposition, this is a Blanc de Noirs, aged 10 months in French oak barrels, and then 15 months on lees, then bottled without dosage (Brut Nature).
Les Grandes Lignes Brut Nature
A Blanc de Blancs, coming from a single 0.5 hectares vineyard with a full Southern exposure. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, and then 15 months on lees, then bottled without dosage (Brut Nature).
Les Revers Brut Nature
The opposite of the Grandes Lignes cuvée – Blanc de Blancs, Brut Nature and same vinification, however with parcels with a Northern exposition. With only 2000 produced, a true haute-couture gem.
Les Semblables Boréal Brut Nature
The counterpart of the Austral cuvée – Blanc de Noirs, Brut Nature and same vinification, however with parcels with a Northern exposition. The upmost precise work towards the origin of the fruits.
