BLANC DE BLANCS 2010

VINTAGE
A fresh and contrasting year marked by a particularly cold winter with heavy frosts, followed by a dry and cool spring and early summer. A shocking climatic turnaround in August and September with two very wet and humid months which complicated ripening at the end of the season. Only a few south-facing plots and vines with very few grapes achieved satisfactory ripening. 2010 is a contrasting vintage, between the fragility of the Pinot, sorted very carefully, and the triumph of some great Chardonnays on the Côte des Blancs!

WINEMAKING
The Blanc de Blancs 2010 cuvée has been drawn off at low pressure to ensure a fuller, richer flow of bubbles. The wine is aged for 5 years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 9 g/l.

TASTING NOTES
A yellow-gold colour with subtle green tints. Subtle and smooth effervescence. An intense bouquet of golden plum and tangy mango, candied lemon, flowers (mimosa) and buttery pastries. A light aeration reveals hints of sugared almonds (ground almonds), white chocolate with a slight vanilla edge and baked apples.

The expectation is for a substantial and voluminous follow-up - but instead the initial intensity subsides revealing the precision, purity and chalky, mineral freshness of the grand Avize Chardonnays.
