This Blanc de Blancs will give you the full Côte des Blancs chardonnay experience. This bottle is made up of a 2015 base wine - 2015 was a good year in Champagne with a hot summer and cooler evenings in late August. Great conditions for the delicate chardonnay to thrive. When trying this champagne look for the minerally chalky flavours that accompany the delicate chardonnay.
You can expect special things from this bottle as it won 91/100 Silver Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards (2021)!
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Base 2015 + 59% reserve wines
Process: Completed Malo-lactic fermentation and vinified in stainless steel
For aromas, we found delicate white florals like jasmine, lemon and green apples with a hint of honey on the finish.
During tasting we found more of the same as the aromas of floral jasmine, lemon and green apples but with the additional notes of the signature chardonnay and Côte des Blancs chalky mineral taste.
Light dishes like fish, sushi, or sashimi. Alternatively, this would pair well with light cheeses like goat's cheese.
