Vibrant and mouthwatering, this elegant blanc de blancs is driven by a chalky underpinning, while flavors of poached pear, apple blossom and pickled ginger play on the fine and lacy mousse. Lovely, with a long, minerally finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)
Very fine bready lemon citrus aromas here; a restrained, fresh and attractively raw expression of chardonnay aromas. The palate unleashes more flamboyant fruit flavors, heading through citrus to nectarine and peach. The focus never wavers. Long, fine and pure.
Youthful nose, hints of banana and mango adding an exoticism; the palate is fuller, equally interesting, refreshing and pure with assured bubbles, the creamy biscuity notes subservient to a minerally, chalky substrata. Drinking Window 2017-2024. (panel review)
The NV Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut is a blend of 60 parcels in the Côte des Blancs, so 100% Chardonnay. The newest disgorgement from November 2015 is based on 2013, which was "a great year for Chardonnay," according to Rodolphe Péters. There were "102 or 103 instead of the normal 90 to 93 days between flowering, and harvest simply caused another, a better ripeness," he adds. Fifty percent of the blend is based on 2013, the other 50% come from the perpetual réserve, which is stored in stainless steel, cement and oak vats. The wine has a brilliant color, is very clear, precise and complex on the nose, displaying fresh lemon fruit aromas. Intense and complex as well as super fresh and clear on the palate, this elegant wine is still very young, but offers a stunning fruit intensity and a firm and mineral structure; there is a long and complex finish with a refreshing grip. Very promising. The Cuvée de Réserve has been in the markets since April. Dosage is 6.7 grams. (SR) 91+
