Grape: Pinot Noir
MCN Coteaux Champenois Blanc is a white wine produced in the Champagne region by Maison Tarlant.
It is part of a range of three labels called MCN, where the letters represent the lieux-dits from which the grapes come (M - Pierre de Bellevue C - L'Enclume N - Les Crayons), while on the label, the letter among the three written in larger characters represents the grape variety from which it is made (in this case MCN means obtained from Pinot Noir, while the other two in the range are MCN Chardonnay and MCN Pinot Meunier).
Made from 100% Pinot Noir vinified in white, this wine ferments spontaneously in oak barrels, where it is aged for 16 months. The MCN Coteaux Champenois Blanc has a luminous straw yellow colour and a rich and expressive nose with notes of green apple, citrus, minerals and a hint of oak. The sip is dense and full-bodied, balanced by a lovely freshness.
