Coteaux Champenois V.11 Vin Rouge NV
A Wine That
sidles up to Burgundy and says, Hey, I can make wine that can challenge you. Light as a feather and with that ethereal forest-like perfume that only Pinot Noir can create, this is a rare one-of-a-kind bottle from Charles.

Where and How?
This is a still Pinot Noir from Champagne. In Champagne, still wines are known as Coteaux Champenois, and in a world that's heating up, Champagne suddenly finds itself capable of world-class still wines, too.
Just 300 bottles of this wine was made - the rest was used as the base wine for Charles' Bistrotage 2011 Champagne. The whole clusters underwent carbonic maceration for three weeks, before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and without sulphites.
The Winemaker: Charles Dufour
Charles Dufour is Champagne's rebel child. A fierce drive to do things differently and to follow his gut instict led him to start out solo, away from his parents. It's not always been an easy ride, and it can get pretty lonely, but Charles has free rein to experiment and step outside of the box of convention. Over the years, his Champagnes have gained international recognition, and are poured in top restaurants around the world. The creativity and energy found within these bottles are like nothing we've ever come across before.
