The blend is from four parcels in the four Grand Cru villages of Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant and is actually a vintage wine, 100% from one fine harvest year.
Dosage: 2 g / L
Appearance: The wine is crystalline, the robe golden with hints of green which are typical of the Chardonnay varietal. The mousse is fine and regular with a pretty ribbon of bubbles.
The Nose: The first nose is flowery with hints of hawthorn and honeysuckle, and slightly fruity. Notes of citrus (candied lemon) and hazelnut then appear. The finish is a bit smoky, which brings complexity and elegance.
Palate: This wine is incredibly complex, modestly dosed with 2 grams of residual sugar. The attack is tight and creamy at the same time. Delicate notes of lemon and stone fruit and flowers are followed by notes of tangerine and toasted bread. The finish is persistent with candied citrus flavors and a chalky minerality which adds a twist of salinity and confirms the fact that the grapes are sourced from the great Grand Cru villages of Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Cramant and Avize
