Description

First pressing Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from grands crus vineyards “Côte des Blancs”. An amazing blend of 25 reserve vintages, going all the way back to 1985! The wine spends 4 years on lees, then a further ten months ageing in the bottle after disgorgement. The delicacy of the bubbles helps to tame the naturally mineral Grands Crus to offer a sensation that is both creamy and lively. A very old winemaking method is used where fermentation in the bottle is less powerful than traditional champagne. The dosage is a very low 5g/L.

Phil’s notes
A first pressing of Chardonnay with vintage material dating back to the early 1980s makes this wine very special. It’s often hard to describe the experience of wines of this nature: they are almost beyond words. The bead is exquisite and dances along the palate, with granny smith apples and zesty citrus providing the backbone, with minerality and the naturally high acidity providing the crunch. A wine you simply can’t put down with a long, lingering finish. You’ll pay more for lesser bottles than this. Pure luxury.
