100% Chardonnay from the prime, Grand Cru villages of Cramant, Oger and Mesnil sur Oger, the 10 years it spent gently maturing on its lees has imparted a finesse of mousse and intensity of flavour that are captivating.
With a fine, toasty, lemon-scented bouquet, the palate is tightly knit, rich and full of energy, the mousse being mouth-coating and creamily textured. Pull the cork on this now to enjoy it at its most vivacious, fragrant and uplifting; cellar some bottles for 5 years for to allow the body to broaden and the layers of flavour to emerge.
After a particularly rapid spurt in vegetation growth, the Champagne region is hit hard by spring frosts in April. Blossoming is therefore difficult in the cold and rainy conditions. Blossom drop and uneven grape development are only compensated by the large number of bunches and the wide branches. A heat wave summer then sets in and remains until the generous downpours in the days leading up to the harvest, (on 11 September). The musts boast an exceptional composition and homogenous quality; throughout the Champagne region.
