Au fil du Temps Brut Nature 2016



Our Two Cents

This cuvée comes from grapes grown on the oldest plots of the domaine, vinified separately then blended and aged in neutral oak. All of its grapes came from the dramatic year of 2016 — a rollercoaster of a vintage that saw it all from record-breaking rainfall to brutal frosts to a late heat wave that accelerated ripening, depleted water and provided too much sun for developing grapes.

SEE: Straw yellow with gold reflections, a fine, frothy mousse and elegant effervescence 

SMELL: Fragrant red apple notes, almond skin and crusty baguette

TASTE: Dried yellow apple, zesty citrus and crème fraîche. Supple structure in the mid-palate yet delightfully balanced by fresh, wet-stone minerality and a long, lingering finish.

PAIR: Pair with a garden vegetable galette with grainy mustard, roasted, herby potatoes and a simple green salad.

  • Can you provide recommendations?

    We thought you’d never ask! Whether you’re choosing Champagne for yourself or a gift for someone else, fatcork celebration specialists have you covered! Need help pairing a bottle from your club allocation for your dinner party? We can help there too! In our online bottle shop, you’ll discover an assortment of beautifully curated bundles and gift sets. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, call or email us, and we’d be happy to help you navigate our inventory of delicious bubbles.

  • Do I have to be a club member to shop bottles?

    No way José. All are welcome to purchase any of our delicious bubbles online or in person at the fatcork cave.

  • What do I do if my Champagne is corked?

    Damp, wet cardboard? That’s not on the tasting note! Cork taint is the worst, but all fatcork Champagnes use natural cork closures, so it does happen on the rare occasion. Please let us know, and will happily replace the bottle. Before you throw it away, snap a photo of the back label and we can refer to the code for reference. Email it to along with the order number.

  • Can I return or exchange my bottles?

    We aim to please. Call or email us, so we can talk about what happened and how we can make things right.
