A blanc de noirs (100% Pinot Noir) that comes from Kimmeridgian-limestone soils. Mostly from a single vintage but also includes 5% reserve wine (from a perpetual blend started in 2001 and stored in a giant old foudre). The wines spend 15-20 months on lees in bottle after the secondary fermentation and disgorged with zero dosage.
''The amber-colored NV Brut Nature Fidèle is gorgeous. Lifted, precise and nuanced throughout, the Fidèle possesses a captivating aromatic. Medium in body and tense in style, the Fidèle is super-expressive today. It could use another year in bottle to soften a bit, but it is nevertheless striking.'' Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
