Pas Dosè – Alta LangaD.O.C.G.

PAS DOSÈ is Cocchi’s brut nature produced with pure Pinot Noir harvest 2008.
A particular vintage with grapes characterized by unexpected concentration and acidity which made us bet on the good result of a long aging.
Six years later, tasting the bottles still resting ‘sur lattes’, we realized how this cuvée just made of Pinot Noir could give its best expression without dosage and without sugar addition.
Cocchi Pas Dosé Alta Langa Docg Brut Nature is a reserve of 5000 bottles and 500 Magnum.

Grapes harvesting: by hand in crates

Pressing: must yield – 7800 kilos of grapes with a must yield of 55%

Fermentation: in respect of Cocchi’s style, grapes have been fermenting for three weeks in small steel vats

Cuvée composition: 100% Pinot Noir Champagne fine biotype – the cuvée composition is prepared at the end of winter with wines rigorously harvest 2008.

Aging in bottle: prise de mousse and aging ‘sur lattes’ over a period of 70 months

Riddling: manual on wooden pupitres with frozen disgorgement in January2015

Tasting notes: the perfumes candor allow to recognize the yeasts contribution to the long aging while Pinot Noir rigor, united to the well-defined taste and the remarkable freshness of the cuvee, combine with the persistent flavor of this vintage Alta Langa.
Intense and involving for the good balance of its definitely dry taste.
