Score : 92/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
Medium intensity lemon-yellow color, delicate and bright.
The nose strikes by its power and intensity, dominated by toasted hazelnut and sweet spices. Nutmeg, clove, a touch of vanilla and caramel. Secondary aromas mainly, from the winemaking, though primary floral touches from the fruit are also to be smelt discretely.
The palate reveals great tension with extreme concentration of the acidity making the wine feel zesty and lively. Rich bold spicy and nutty flavors are delivered with great intensity. Dry and well balanced with a solid body, the finish maintains the tension from the strong acidity felt all along, but adds an enjoyable savory grassiness and a touch of bitterness.
An intense and powerful Champagne Blanc de Blancs, packed full with grape acidic concentration and freshness, plus a lot of complex secondary richness.
Retails around $85 or 55€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
