Score : 92+/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED and recommended as a best buy/value at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
100% Chardonnay. Disgorged March 2016.
Slightly pale lemon-yellow color, with some gold hues, elegant to look at!
It’s even more so to smell. Mineral fresh lemon and marmalade is what comes to mind. The nose is like fresh zesty lemon, though with a lemon tart edge to it that you would smell sitting by the ocean on a misty morning. A touch of white pepper lifts it up with a subtle spicy tone, and it’s creamy as your swirl. Tempting and charming, so fresh, deep, and pure.
The palate has solid body and weight, but not heavy thanks to a mineral yet soft acidity. This weighty body fills your palate with a delicate oily texture, smoothness accentuated by extremely fine bubbles. Complex flavors of mixed spices, citrus and cream end on a long elegant finish.
Concentrated elegant finesse for this Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs.
Retails around $50 or 40€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
