View Detail
Made without use of malolactic fermentation from 39 year old, south facing vineyards, this exemplary Blanc de Blanc is produced using only the first pressing of the grapes. The Champagne is then aged a minimum of 5 years on the lees before hand riddling and disgorgement, after which it is aged an additional six months before entering the market. The resulting wine sports a potent, mineral- and floral-accented bouquet redolent of citrus oils, pear skin, honey and iodine, with subtle notes of toasty lees and sweet butter. Deeply concentrated but strikingly energetic, offering penetrating Meyer lemon, floral and candied ginger flavors that put on weight with air. Shows excellent focus and power on the lingering finish.
