Really attractive ripe and pure chardonnay sourced from the Côte de Blancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger. This has bright ripe peaches and nectarines in addition to mangoes, lemons and – not to mention some background chalky aromas. The palate's a riot of fleshy and flavorsome Chardonnay fruit with a helping of stone fruits and another of green mango flavors and deeper-set citrus zest. Seamless balance flows to the finish. Drink now. Superb!
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is from Chardonnay grapes sourced in Avize, Chouilly, Cramant and Mesnil-sur-Oger. Based on the 2013 harvest plus 30% reserve wines and fermented in stainless steel, this blend opens with an amazingly pure but intense and deep bouquet with yellow-fleshed fruit aromas intermixed with chalky and lemony notes as well as hints of orange blossoms and iodine. Full-bodied and intense yet pure and finessed on the palate this is a rich yet very precise and elegant Blanc de Blancs with a persistent structure and a long, dense, almost lush finish. This is lot L 196F889 45576 (disgorged in April 2018), tasted in November 2018. Drink through 2028. (SR)
Light yellow-gold. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by notes of honeysuckle, lemongrass and chalky minerals. Spicy, focused and mineral-driven, with intense Meyer lemon, tangerine and pear skin flavors given depth by a hint of brioche. A note of smokiness builds on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding floral persistence. (JR)
The balance of this wine is immediately striking. Everything is in its place: the crisp apples, tight acidity and the mineral texture are all just right. It's a delicious, perfumed and fragrant wine that is ready to drink with its light, poised aftertaste. (RV)
A hint of salinity underscores the flavors of poached pear, marzipan, spiced plum and kumquat in this elegant blanc de blancs. Vibrant acidity drives this to a lasting, mouthwatering finish. (AN)
