Delicate on the nose, but still very expressive, the nose has wonderful aromatic freshness with notes of pomelo, white fruits, lime tree, frangipani flowers, and delicate hints of pineapple and ginger.
This is a Blanc de blancs that exudes richness with a lavish mouth-watering fullness. Just the right amount of acidity to leave the palate refreshed. Lemon curd, Tart Tatin with subtle spice and a mineral finish.
'Le Blanc de Blancs' is produced in small quantities in exceptional years only and fully expresses the superb calibre of great Chardonnay from the best crus of the Côte des Blancs.
"Right from the start, this wine is striking on the palate, yet voluptuous and vibrant, showing a silky texture with a lively edge, and finishing with a balanced bittersweet flavour. It releases notes of passion fruits, citrus fruit, ripe white fruit such as vine peaches, and subtle notes of acacia honey that bring a velvety sensation. The long finish is tightly wound on the pure line of characteristic chalky minerality for which the Côte des Blancs is famous." James Suckling
