This super-limited (70 case) edition is a 50/50 blend of Grand Cru Chardonnay (Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Cramant) and Premier Cru Pinot Noir from Hautvillers and Cumieres. Hand harvested with 33% of the base wine undergoing malolactic fermentation followed by extended "Sur Latte" aging for 84 months. Beautifully evolved aromas of baked bread roasted almond aromas distinguish the bouquet while the palate displays a long, luxuriant interplay of honeyed stone fruit, citrus and limestone elements. This gem epitomizes an import facet of our raison d'etre-namely finding over-looked artisanal Champagne producers that wildly over delver at their price point. In this case we have uncovered a vintage Champagne crafted by a boutique mother-daughter operation (situated in Dom Perignon's village of Hautvillers) that exudes a lofty luxury Champagne taste experience at less than half the tariff one would expect.
