Fabrice Gass, the man behind the Filaine wines, is an iconoclast even for Champagne. From one parcel, that is planted to Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, he makes three cuvees, each one is aged in old barrels - often left over from Bollinger where he worked for years - no malolactic fermentation and very little intervention. The resulting wines are beautiful, complex and far too limited in supply.
The most rare of all of his wines, Sensuum Vertigo is a blend of at least two vintages, aged on the lees under cork for a minimum of five years. It is energetic with a lasting bouquet, bright acidity and a long lush finish. 500 bottles made.
