Champagne “Récolte Blanche Brut”


100% Chardonnay hand harvested, manually pressed, and fermented in used 228L Puligny-Montrachet barrels. At a glance here, the soils reveal themselves to be nearly identical to those you find in Chablis – rocky, Kimmeridgian, and Portlandian clay and limestone. 2 years minimum sur latte, 30% reserve wine aged in barrel, 5g dosage.

"This richly expressive Champagne is focused by a streak of racy acidity, creating a mouthwatering frame for the flavors of ripe yellow peach, cardamom, grated ginger, toast and lime blossom. Offers a long, lightly honeyed finish, with spice and graphite details. Disgorged January 2016. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases imported."

"The NV Extra Brut Recolte Blanche is 100% Chardonnay from vineyards in the Cote des Bar. It is a beautiful, nuanced Champagne endowed with layers of silky fruit that come to life on the palate. Decidedly vinous in style, the wine is best treated like a subtle white Burgundy with bubbles. A refined, polished finish rounds out this gorgeous offering from Dosnon & Lepage. No disgorgement information available. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015."
