This pure Chardonnay is a selection from three plots. One-third comes from “Les Hautes Mottes” of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; the second third, from the “Vozémieux” terroir of Oger. These two terroirs of the Cote des Blancs are classified Grand Cru, and the vines have never received herbicides or pesticides. The last third comes from the soil “Les Corrigniers” of Ludes, Premier Cru, of the Montagne de Reims. This great wine is chiseled and precise; a tension is present and persists in a saline finish.
Pale yellow with a green light. the perlage is abundant with a fine mousse which stays at the top of the glass. Elegant nose, fine, fresh nuts, subtle vanilla and white flower aromas along with fresh citrus fruits like grapefruit and lime. The mouthfeel is smooth at the beginning, then comes the lively freshness typical of the chardonnay grape. The finish has a great salinity which comes from the chalky soil. - Philippe Gonet
