This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
100% Chardonnay. Disgorged in March 2016.
The color of this Blanc de Blancs Champagne is of mid intensity, though quite solid with some gold hues.
Mid-intensity nose as well, but well lifted by enjoyable ripe citrus aromas: pink grapefruit, ripe orange. Touches of creamy leesy characters give the aromatic profile a pleasing soft feel. A brioche cake scented with lemon essence!
Flavors are powerful and intense. Loads of hay and lemon zest burst on the palate with great confidence. Good balance with a mellowed acidity giving it a smooth feel on a medium body. Honey flavors are delightful and reinforce the ripe fruit characters. A few drying phenolics to the finish for a slight savory end.
A well-made, complex and rather extrovert Blanc de Blancs that isn’t shy of showing off its ripe fruit flavors, brioche, grassy, and spicy tones.
Retails around $60 or 45€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
