Notes from Regal Wine Imports:

"Champagne Louis Nicaise is located in the Vallee de la Marne village of Hautvillers in the heart of Champagne. Dom Perignon made this village famous and it is known as the birthplace of Champagne. Though the historical record is not clear on that point. The fourth generation Nicaise estate has taken a qualitative turn for the better in recent years. The new generation of Laure Nicaise-Préaux and her husband, then 25 year old Clement Préaux, began working at the domain in 2007. Clement apprenticed with the great Anselme Selosse before then, and the young couple has implemented a progressive approach including lower dosage and gaining certification for sustainability."

About the cuvee:

The 2016 vintage Extra Brut spent over 6 years on its tirage lees prior to disgorgement in January 2023. It was bottled with a dosage of 3.5 grams/liter.
