Oiry Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Clear medium gold that’s strikingly attractive. The nose is so pretty and deep with lemon and herbal aromas immediately. There are some almond notes after a bit of time along with delicate flowers. The chalk here is incredible and long. Peaches and pears, with apples and moist limestone.

The word that instantly comes to mind with this champagne is purity. It’s so pure, so alive, so vibrant. And such a good pure representation of the terroir. From Oiry in the Côte des Blancs and based from 2016 vintage. This is an intense wine and probably not for everyone, but it’s so charming and precise. Beautifully racy acidity and exquisite structure. Fresh as hell and sharp, in that good way.

That Grand Cru fruit struts its stuff in the mouth. The chalk just screams at you until you fall head over heels in love. The citrus begins to shine along with more almonds and toasted bread. Long finish with a small bite of spice. Superbly spectacular. A real gem of a champagne.

Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Belatedly celebrating @Deked1’s special day with his favorite bottle of bubbles! 🥂🥂

This wine was disgorged in 2017 after aging on the lees in Ruinart’s chalk cellars for a decade. It’s spent the last 5 years in the bottle.

With a pale gold hue, this wine is showing some delicious signs of age, but also remains incredibly vibrant.

It offers a fine mousse with rich notes of lemon curd, flint, hazelnut, marzipan, toast, and brioche. Yas!! 👏🏻 It’s so darn good. We don’t want this bottle to end.

I’m English by birth, so July 4th is not a good look for us. I’ll be keeping a very low profile on that day 🥲

Les Pierrières Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2014

The coveted 2018 disgorgement! 48 month sur lattes Les Pierrieres is a total stunner. Raring to go right out of the bottle, it’s simply just a complete Champagne. It displays a stunning crystalline purity and a seamless combination of richness and elegance. It’s layered with white flowers, fresh brioche, lemon candy and signature chalky minerals with fantastic persistence, cut and texture. A little age goes such a long way with these wines. Terrific. — 9 days ago

Cuvée L'Artiste Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut Champagne 1er Cru Chardonnay

LV10. Pop and pour. Stunner, but better on day 1 than on day 2. On the nose: soft florals, vanilla, lemon, lime. On the palate: soft mousse, lovely acidity, grapefruit pith, wet stone and a solid finish. Clashed a bit with some of the heat in some plates last night, but fantastic on its own. Seems to be peaking. — 5 days ago
