Champagne Oliver Horiot Métisse NV, an assimilation of 8 different terroirs within the Riceys region, with marl and clay from Kimmeridian soils.
With ~80% of the wines from the 2014 vintage and the balance from a solera system, the wine demonstrates fruit from the pinot noir and delicacy from the pinot blanc.
Less than ten thousand bottles produced.
Oliver Horiot is a vigneron in the region of Cote de Bar, after taking over the family vineyards more than a decade ago, Oliver ‘rebelled’ against traditional Champagne making. Previous wines were combined from various plots and fertilisers and chemicals were used to boost yields. Now, Oliver works mostly organic and biodynamically, preferring to separate the different plots within the Ricey region (Especially Barmont and Valingrain), to bring forth the terroir in the wine. Being in Les Riceys also means a rare distinction of having 3 AOCs, Rose the Riceys, Champagne as well as Côteaux Champenois Wine (Red or White).
Champagne Oliver Horiot is distributed exclusively by Wine Journey in Singapore and Malaysia
