Blanc de Blancs

$520.00

- 2012 was an exceptional harvest with great ageing potential

- Bottle is hand made from Carbon Fibre which makes two weeks to produce

- 100% Chardonnay coming from Avize and surrounding grand cru villages

In 2012 the high number of sunny days in July foreshadowed and exceptional harvest. A limited number of grapes were kept to each vine, allowing for the exceptional ripening.

"Some flinty aromas on the nose of this pale yellow coloured wine. Bruised apple, cinnamon toast and lemon curd aromas join with the smoky minerality in the mouth, sustained and lifted by the lively mousse. Character, the richness is held in check by refinement and elegance with a lip-smacking citrus acidity freshening the finish." IWSC - 93 points

This is a vintage champagne that can be enjoyed now or cellared for further development.

Technical details

Dosage: 8g/L. Aged on lees for 6 years. 100% Chardonnay

Created and founded by Alexandre Méa, this brand was conceived in 2011 with the first bottles release in 2013. Méa is the 5th heir to the Méa-Devavry family who has been wine-growing and producing champagne in Champillon since 1920.

Champagne Carbon is a pioneering Champagne house, operating at the intersection between tradition and modernity. All wines are aged a minimum five years on lees. They ferment in small oak barrels adding complexity and elegance to the incomparable style of their champagnes.

Striving to promote the excellence of French craftsmanship, each bottle from the Attraction series is handcrafted and goes through a 38 step process to create the carbon fibre exterior that stand as the signature of the house. The choice in name extends beyond the bottle and to the essence of life, from carbon DNA to the carbon dioxide that crafts the bubbles in the champagne. 

Would suit a delicate recipe like a lime-scallop ceviche or a red mullet cooked in olive oil and thyme.
