Yves Roy (or "Novice" as he's decided to call project) is, as you might guess, a newcomer to the world of winemaking. After training with and acquiring some vineyards from Valentin Morel, he's branched out to bottle just a few cuvées from his miniscule 1.7ha of vines. This is his first released wine, plus the first of his wines to make it to the UK, and we're incredibly excited to have these little ponies on our shelves. This wine is made in the charmat method and has fine little bubbles that give wonderful life to a plump, mineral palate. The perfect road soda, stocking stuffer, little tipple. Regardless of what you're intending to do with it, it'll be loads of fun.

A blend of two Grand Cru vineyards in Avize and Cramant. Tiny dosage, possessing an amazing spectrum of aromas and laser-like acid. Stunning now but will age and age.
