L'Inattendue Brut Nature



Our Two Cents

French for “unexpected,” L’Inattendue is made from 100 percent pinot meunier. Though rare for the Champagne region, pinot meunier accounts for 40 percent of grapes grown on the estate. Vinified in stainless steel and with only 1 g/l of dosage in the finish, this cuvée represents the specificities of its unique terroir and highlights the natural beauty and complexity of the pinot meunier grape.

SEE: Straw yellow with coral reflections, fine bubbles and foamy mousse

SMELL: Top soil, quince paste, wet hay and dried white flowers

TASTE: Elegant acidity punctuated by notes of citrus, asian pear and honeycomb. As it opens up, secondary notes of must, cider and bruised apple emerge followed by a kiss of pastry crumbs and a long, savory finish.

PAIR: Serve this with a feast of crab and drawn butter or with a simple breakfast spread featuring fluffy scrambled eggs and toasted sourdough with unsalted butter and flaky salt.

  • 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 info@fatcork.com 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.
