Pas Dosé

2008
Brut nature

PAS DOSÉ is Cocchi’s Brut Nature made with pure Pinot Noir harvest 2008. An exceptional vintage with grapes characterized by unexpected concentration and acidity which made us foresee the good result of a long maturation.
Six years later, tasting the bottles still resting ‘sur lattes’, we realized how this 100% Pinot Noir cuvée could give its best expression without dosage and therefore without sugar addition.
Cocchi Pas Dosé Alta Langa DOCG Brut Nature is a reserve of 5000 bottles and 500 Magnum.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Pinot Noir Champagne fine biotype Grapes are hand-picked in small baskets.

VINIFICATION AND SPARKLING WINE MAKING

Presses are loaded with 7800 kilos of grapes with a must yield of 55%.
In line with Cocchi’s style, the first fermentation took place in small steel vats for three weeks. The cuvée composition has been prepared at the end of winter with 100% Pinot Noir rigorously from harvest 2008. Foaming and aging ‘sur lattes’ over a period of 80 months.
The remuage is done by hand on wooden A-shaped racks (the pupitres) and is followed by frozen disgorgement (dégorgement à la glace) in January 2016.
Zero sugar added.

TASTING NOTES

The candor of the perfumes allow to recognize the purity of this great Alta Langa, while long refinement emphasizes the dense texture of Pinot Noir.
The well-defined taste and the remarkable freshness of the cuvée combine with the persistent flavor of this vintage Alta Langa.
The resolutely dry taste crunches in the mouth with its hints of raw hazelnut and candied white fruits, intense and involving for the good balance of its lightly acid hues.
