Clos Cazals Vieilles Vignes Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2010

This plot cuvée was created jointly by Delphine and her father, Claude in 1995.

Its grapes come from the oldest vines of Clos, planted by Claude Cazals in 1957, located in Oger.

Clos are very rare in Champagne, there are only about twenty (21). Delphine Cazals owns one of the largest clos of the Côte des Blancs (3.70 Ha).

A passage in oak barrels is carried out for all vintages in order to bring subtle and delicate aromas.

Aging on slats for a minimum of 10 years in a vaulted cellar in Mesnil-sur-Oger is required to develop the full aromatic palette of this exceptional cuvée, highlighting all the complexity of the 100% Oger terroir.

A fine and elegant champagne with notes of white flowers and citrus fruits with an appreciable roundness and revealed by a minimal dosage between Extra-Brut and Brut Nature depending on the vintage.

Terroir: Le Clos d´Oger - GRAND CRU

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay

Clau de Nell Anjou Cabernet Franc 2011

Deep dark purple in the glass, muted at first but with air the aromatics of blackberries, violets, cracked pepper, graphite and dried leaves come out to play. Palate-saturating and velvety in the mouth with finely grained tannins and sweet dark berry fruit. Beautiful and should last a while — 2 days ago

Chassagne-Montrachet Pinot Noir 2017

Always as good, spices on the nose, touch of liquorice, lots of ripe red fruit as well as on the palate, fresh and with some grip, nice length.

Toujours aussi bon, un nez épicé, réglisse un peu, du fruit rouge assez mur en quantité tout comme en bouche, suave et frais à la fois, belle longueur.

Maurice et Claude Gaget

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2018

Sour cherry, leather, hay. Very nice nose, very engaging and inviting. The palate is well made with a good acid drive, a nice bright sour cherry note, it's rather thin than broad, a bit of tannins in the rear, leaving a layer of gentle disruption over a long and bright cherry finish. It's a very good Beaujolais in a subtle, precise style. — 6 days ago
