Wines of the Night
This 100% estate grown, Grand Cru blanc de blancs is made entirely with old Chardonnay selections from Mesnil, Cramant, and Oger.
A rich and smoky base note of roasted nut supports flavors of lemon meringue pie, quince paste, toasted coconut and cumin, and spun honey. There's lovely creamy texture here, with finely meshed acidity throughout.
Produced from Grand and Premier Cru vines in the Côte des Blancs, this crisp, mineral-driven wine has intense acidity, citrus flavors and a tight, steely texture. Still young, it needs to age and will be best from 2018.
