Pas Dosé

2011
Brut nature

PAS DOSÉ 2011 is Cocchi’s Brut Nature made with pure Pinot Noir. An exceptional vintage with grapes characterized by unexpected concentration and acidity which made us foresee the good result of a long maturation.
After 60 months of wait we did the dégorgement with the first bottles, and we realized how this 100% Pinot Noir cuvée could give its best expression without dosage.
Cocchi Pas Dosé is an Alta Langa 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%. The grapes are hand-picked, then in line with Cocchi’s tradition, the first fermentation took place in small steel vats for three weeks. Foaming and aging ‘sur lattes’ over a period of 60 months.

The remuage is done by hand on wooden A-shaped racks (the pupitres) and is followed by frozen disgorgement (dégorgement à la glace). The first disgorgement took place in April 2017, the second one the December of the same year.

Zero sugar added.

TASTING NOTES

The long refinement emphasizes the dense and complex texture of best pure Pinot Noir, and develops candid but persistent perfumes.  In the mouth there is a good savouriness and a dry taste typical of the Pas Dosé, a remarkable fresh and defined taste that reminds of raw hazelnut and candied white fruits, intense and involving for the good balance of its lightly acid hues.
