A special treat for lovers of Blanc de Blancs. This is a rare example of 100% Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims. The region is legendary for the quality of their Pinot's but there does exist small pockets of Chardonnay. This blend is sourced from three premier cru villages; Chigny-les-Roses, Rilly La Montagne and Ludes.
Chardonnay from the Montagne tends to be fleshier and rounder than its counterparts from the Cotes des Blancs. There are white floral and citrus notes on the nose which lead to a creamily textured palate of ripe citrus, vanilla and almonds. The base wine is 2014 with the addition of 50% reserve wines adding an extra layer of depth balanced by a chalky, saline minerality. The average vine age is more than thirty years. It is refreshing, full and lively with long ageing potential Dosage 9g/l
