- A full-bodied style of blanc de blancs
- Made by Francois & Pierre Huré who are generational growers
- Pair with a steamed hapuka with greens and fresh lemon
The nose is lifted with fresh lemon and white floral notes. The mouth is leads in to a generous, creamy and full-bodied style of blanc de blancs. We love the line of acidity keeping everything in check, just how good chardonnay should be made.
"Inattendue is a terroir-specific blanc de blancs, intended to be an expression of the Montagne de Reims: half of it comes from Les Sentiers in Ludes, a parcel of sandy clay and loam, while the other half is from Les Blanches Voies in Rilly-la-Montagne, a south-facing, intensely chalky site that’s known as the source of Vilmart’s Coeur de Cuvée." Peter Liem.
Technical details: It’s vintage-dated, released after four to five years on its lees and dosed as an extra brut.
