NV Doyard 'Vendemiaire' Blanc de Blanc Brut 1er Cru

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

The NV Brut Premier Cru Cuvée Vendémiaire is a Chardonnay from five villages of the Côte des Blancs but is mainly sourced in Vertus (50%). The recent disgorgement from early 2018 (dosage: four grams per liter) is based on the 2012 vintage and includes 50% of reserve wines from vintages 2011 down to 2008. Intensely citrus colored, this is a pure, fresh, concentrated, very mineral and pure Chardonnay that still offers greenish citrus flavors. With great finesse and complexity on the palate, it is very elegant and pure as well as very long and expressive, with intense, powerful and well-concentrated but fresh and highly finessed fruit and vitality. There is lots of energy and tension here, lots of expression and length. Great complexity and vitality. This has huge aging potential. A great wine, indeed.

Wine Spectator

Rich and well-spiced, this creamy Champagne is defined by firm acidity and a chalky undertow. Shows a range of flavors, with notes of baked melon, toasted hazelnut, golden apple and lemon preserves accented by a skein of warm baking spices and graphite that winds through and lingers on the finish.
