Here is the Blanc de Blancs from this exciting new house. All the fruit for this is sourced from Premier Cru sites along the Cote des Blancs including Grauves and highlights a moreish sense of chardonnay.
When we tasted this with co-founder of the house Rodolphe late 2017, we were quietly impressed with the expressive nature of this champagne. The nose presents aromas of acacia, apricot, hazelnut followed by warm butter on toast. We know this sounds fanciful, but there is a LOT going on here.
The taste shows richness and a creamy mousse with soft, almost pillowy texture. Flavours develop into pear, autumn apple and a smoky mineral finish. This is delicious!
Vitals: Aged 5 years on lees with a further year in bottle prior to release. Dosage sits at 7.5 grams per litre which makes it Brut. the base wine for this is from the 2012 harvest.
