"The newest release of Lilbert-Fils Blanc de Blancs “Grand Cru” non-vintage Brut, was disgorged in June of 2016 and is composed of fifty percent base year 2013 and fifty percent reserve wines from the previous harvest. This bottling is produced from fruit from the grand cru villages of Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry and was finished with a dosage of seven grams per liter. The bouquet is pure and nascently complex, delivering scents of pear, delicious apple, pastry cream, chalky minerality and white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very well-balanced, with a nicely integrated girdle of acidity, a lovely core of fruit, fine, pinpoint bubbles and good length and grip on the still youthful, but inviting finish. I might actually opt for drinking this bottling over the near-term and let the earlier disgorgement rest in the cellar, as this is a bit more open out of the blocks. Good juice. 2017-2035. "
