This wine comes from Le Mesnil, one of the top villages in the Côte des Blancs, and is produced from only Grand Cru vineyards. It is as textured and mineral as a young wine like this should be. White fruit shows through the concentrated texture and will become more dominant as the wine matures. (RV)
Sourced from three vineyards in Mesnil (Les Zailleux, Le Tilleul and Les Hautes Mottes) that were picked on the same day (24th of September), Olivier Bonville's citrus colored 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Mesnil shows a deep, intense and chalky-mineral bouquet of crushed limestones intertwined with ripe, concentrated fruit aromas (most of all lemons) and delicate herbal (marjoram) and flint stone notes. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, tight, dense, dry, salty, vibrantly fresh and persistently mineral Blanc de Blancs with remarkable purity on the long and lemon-fresh finish. The 2012 impressively reflects the complexity of the Mesnil terroir, and its precise, fine and mineral finish indicates excellent aging potential. There is stimulating grapefruit freshness and bitterness in the finish. (SR) 93+
