Prestige Blanc de Blancs Brut
France - Champagne - Cramant
Tasting Note
Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; reserves stored in a ‘méthode perpetuelle’ system of every vintage back to vintage 2009 in three 40hL foudres of more than 10 years of age to mature slowly in a deep, cool cellar 14 metres underground, ‘to uphold energy, body and richness’; 5g/L dosage
The creaminess of Cramant is the signature of this cuvée, likened by Isabelle Diebolt to butter and brioche. A wonderful contrast between the depth of deep reserves and the tension and crunch of northern Côte des Blancs chardonnay. It froths and churns with outstanding  ne chalk minerality, seamlessly integrating with grapefruit, lemon and apple. Its effortless juxtaposition of freshness, tension and deep-set concentration is profound, concluding with breathtaking freshness, seamless line, enduring length and the utmost integrity.
