A wonderfully fresh, yeasty and quite citrus-inflected nose speaks of green apple and just a hint of petrol. The pure, intense and utterly delicious flavors carry plenty of aged yeast character that are supported by a firm but distinctly fine effervescence that also shapes the very dry but not austere finish. This is very blanc de blancs in style and offers excellent depth plus it’s extremely stylish. For the record this is not a power Champagne but rather one of finesse and refinement. I very much like this plus it could be drunk now or aged for 5+ years if desired.
The nose here is super chalky, showing dried white flowers, sweetly fragrant yeast elements, lemon rind and a little pepper - very pure. The palate has a refined core of quite dry lemon citrus flavor; crunchy, crisp and even, pure and uncluttered. Drink now.
The NV Blanc de Blancs Brut is a 100% stainless steel-fermented Chardonnay sourced in the grand cru villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Cramant that spends up to five years on the lees in bottle. This bottling is based on the 2012 vintage (plus 10% reserve wines) and was disgorged after almost four years in January 2017 (dosage: 7 grams per liter). It shows deep, clear, fresh and aromatic fruit on the nose, intertwined with chalky flavors typical for this part of the Côte des Blancs. On the palate, this is a round, very elegant, beautifully pure and mineral yet well-concentrated Blanc de Blancs with a stimulatingly fruity and mouth-filling if not succulent finish structured by very fine chalky tannins. This lush and perfectly balanced Brut shows a remarkably fine mousse and drinks perfectly today, but it can be cellared for up to 6 years to gain more complexity. Tasted November 2017. (SR)
Light yellow. Mineral-tinged peach, melon and pear aromas display excellent clarity, picking up a subtle floral quality with aeration. Supple and seamless on the palate, offering vivid honeydew and pit fruit flavors accented by a vibrant lemon zest quality. Finishes very long, silky and precise, with an echo of juicy melon and strong mineral lift. (JR)
Based in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, this producer knows a thing or two about Chardonnay Champagnes. The proof is in this intense, mineral and citrus-driven wine. It has depth of flavor giving concentration as well as richness. Drink this bottling from 2019. (RV)
A vibrant blanc de blancs Champagne, offering a fine, lacy mousse and a mouthwatering palate of star fruit, grated ginger, toast and lemon pastry cream, with a streak of smoky mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (AN)
