JOHN GILMAN 93+ POINTS-"The 2016 vintage of Clos de l’Abbaye from the Doyard family spent fully fifty-one months aging sur latte prior to its disgorgement in October of 2021. It was finished this year with a dosage of two grams per liter. The half hectare clos was planted in 1956 and these old vines are farmed biodynamically by Guillaume Doyard; the vins clairs are barrel-aged in older Burgundy casks and do not go through malolactic fermentation. The wine offers up a lovely bouquet of golden delicious apple, pear, brioche, a fine base of chalky minerality, dried flowers and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is peeceeh7 e, full-bodied and focused, with a good core of fruit, lovely mineral drive and cut, elegant mousse and a long, complex and very well balanced finish. Lovely juice. 2022-2050. 93+."
Yannick Doyard's pride and joy is his Clos de l'Abbaye which is a true tete de cuvee triumph from the 2016 vintage. Derived from an actual, walled "clos" in the heart of Vertus behind the family estate, the Clos de l'Abbaye is planted with 60-year-old Chardonnay vines, bio-dynamically-farmed and horse-plowed. Fermented and aged in older, neutral Burgundy barrels with no malo, it sees a long, 54 months sur lie prior to release at a mere 2 grams/liter of dosage. Only in these very strange times would we be offered an augmented allocation a well as a discounted price on such a crown jewel. Quantity is limited, don't miss out on this truly remarkable Champagne.
