Twenty-five generations of history with the Hugot family in Champagne indicate why this Blanc de Blancs is so very good! It has a pretty nose of light minerals and lemon cream. On the palate, it is quite a bit richer with some mineral "tang" on the finish. There are flavors of whipped cream, lemon curd, (light) nuttiness and a little chalk. Rich, but, not overly so! The deep rooted vines in his vineyards help to bring up the acidity from the soil, resulting in a lingering (and balanced) minerality on the long finish. I plan on buying a magnum, myself!
