Decanter – 93
A superb non-vintage blanc de blancs that comes exclusively from the grand cru Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The wine opens with zippy lemon peel, gooseberry and exotic passion fruit aromas. With time, a lovely mineral/saline depth is revealed, with a creamy texture, pleasantly dense mouthfeel and impressive length. Grapes from the ripe 2015 vintage form the base, with the balance completed with a reserve from solera. The oldest vines date to the 1920s; half was fermented in old barrels and half in tank before ageing for six years and disgorging with a dosage of 3.5g/L.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2035
