DEMIERE-ANSIOT BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS GRAND CRU

This Paul Wasserman discovery produces just two Champagnes: a vintage and multi-vintage Blanc de Blancs. Both are classic expressions of the sunny, generously textured terroir of the Côtes des Blancs village of Oger. This non-vintage bottling stands as one of the best values we have encountered this past year as it exudes a depth and quality that puts it a select league with the Chardonnay Champagnes of Pierre Peters and Pascal Agrapart. Nicolas Demiere sustainably farms (some parcels are cultivated biodynamically) eight and a half acres exclusively in the cru of Oger. For this minuscule, one-man operation Demiere utilizes less than four acres of vines selling the rest of his crop to the négoce. The average age of his vines is 40 years old. This cuvée is 70% 2009 base wine with rest drawn from 2006 and 2008. Nicolas eschews malo-lactic fermentation so even with 8 g/l of dosage, this Brut tastes very pure and toned. Dough and apple pie filling mark the nose, while the palate impresses with a broad chalk-strewn core that’s overlain with zingy inflections of green apples, nectarines and lemon curd.
