Totocorde is Cocchi’s most classic expression of Alta Langa. Totocorde brings together Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is the company’s leading label.
COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
PRODUCTION METHOD: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ferment separately in steel tanks for three weeks and are blended before the addition of the liqueur de tirage, which takes place in spring.
Prise de mousse is completed with long ageing in a cool, dark cellar. Remuage is carried out exclusively by hand on pupitres with dégorgement à la glace. A small amount of liqueur d’expedition is added to perfect an already well-balanced brut.
TASTING NOTES: A beautiful pale straw colour accompanies an ample aromatic spectrum tending towards notes of candied citrus. Thanks to the characteristic savouriness of Alta Langa, it has a particularly rich mouth-feel, with the same aromatic notes found in the nose, with fine citron flavours.
FIRST VINTAGE: 1999
