‘S.A.’ stands for ‘Sans Année,’ or non-vintage. Base 2020, with 10% reserve wines blended in (vintages 2012 to 2019). The vineyards are selected to be a reflection of Flavien’s home village. Vinification is with both spontaneous yeasts as well as selected strains from the estate; all aging is done in oak barrels and vats. Dosage 1g/l.

Flavien Nowack began refocusing his family's estate on single vintage, single parcel bottlings in 2011. Passionate that nothing should come between the purest expression of terroir, he farms organically, does not chaptalize and does not seek malo-lactic fermentation. He relies on the natural yeast of unfermented grape must as his prise de mousse for the secondary fermentation in bottle. As a result, these Champagnes are lower in pressure than is typical and underscores the vinous quality of these exceptionally soft and delicate wines. He does not chaptalize and does not seek malo-lactic fermentation. A young talent with a clear vision.
