Franck Pascal's Brut Nature "Fluence" is a Champagne made by a young vigneron in the Baslieux-sous-Chatillon area, in the heart of the Valée de la Marne. As is customary in the area, it is a cuvée with a predominance of Meunier and a small balance of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It is a label that stands out for its purity and expressive immediacy, accompanied by a lively mineral freshness, which makes the sip pleasantly vibrant and valuable refinement.
The Champagne Brut Nature "Fluence" is produced by Franck Pascal with great attention to the terroir. His vineyards are managed according to biodynamic principles, with a total rejection of herbicides, fertilisers and synthetic chemicals. An approach to the vineyard that translates into a true philosophy of life, aimed at re-establishing the original harmony between man and the environment, with the utmost respect for nature. A way of working that is also reflected in the Champagnes, rich in character and personality, never banal or obvious, far from the danger of standardisation. The first fermentation, carried out using only indigenous yeasts, is followed by the creation of the definitive cuvée and re-fermentation in the bottle using the Champenoise method. The wine rests on the lees for at least 24 months before dégorgement.
Franck Pascal's "Fluence" Champagne is an elegant and dynamic Brut Nature, energetic and vibrant, which well represents the style of the Maison. In the glass it has a straw yellow colour, crossed by a fine and persistent perlage. The bouquet is reminiscent of citrus fruit, ripe yellow fruit, sensations of bread crust and iodine nuances. On the palate it is lively, with a harmonious and intense centre of the mouth, which stretches out with vital tension towards a fresh and mineral finish.
"A certified biodynamic winery since 2004 - even though the rows of vines have been free of chemical herbicides and synthetic products since 1994 - Franck Pascal's is a winery whose main objective is the pursuit of an energetic balance between the elements of nature, without ever implementing invasive artificial corrections.
Just under four hectares of vines in total, 70% of which are planted with pinot meunier, 27% with pinot noir and the remaining 3% with chardonnay. Small parcels of land, spread across no less than seven communes in the department of the Marne, are under the control of the Baslieux-sous-Châtillon winery, where the use of wood is kept to a minimum during vinification in order to enhance the terroir and varietal. Remaining in contact with the fine lees, often right up to bottling, Franck Pascal's Champagnes are left to ferment using only indigenous yeasts, with very little use of sulphur dioxide, and are neither racked nor filtered. Champagnes that are more natural than this are hard to find; labels that offer a rare intensity of taste and smell, not easy to find in the productions of small winemakers. Bubbles that appear shy and austere, only to open up in the glass after a couple of minutes, offering a mineral length and complex texture, while remaining exceptionally elegant and refined.
