Lively bubbles, weighty and chewy, distant sherryish oxidative notes on the nose, and freshly roasted pineapples in the glass, but ultimately a bit too much going on for me. — 2 months ago
Stimulated. Rich. Citrus fruity bubbles makes me stimulated. @3200, domaine, 230623 — 3 months ago
The color is medium straw with effusive bubbles and effervescence. This is just bottled joy. Serious stuff and far beyond so many other champagnes in the same price range. Warm brioche right out of the gate on the nose with a nice burst of ripe citrus aromas. Chalk and honey all day long here.
The 30% of perpetual reserve wines added to the 2017 base makes a world of difference. Sleek and sexy. Racy and electric. The Extra Brut dosage is just right. Terrific balance, sensual mouthfeel, and with plenty of depth and complexity.
In the mouth, there’s an indelible sense of excitement. Minerality and wet stone. Cherries and apples wrapped in a tropical fruit core. The finish is long and enveloping leaving you wanting more. A lot more. This champagne sings. — 9 months ago
2022 New Year. 2017 base, degorged 9/2020. A great basic Champagne, lovely and relatively fruity compared to the rest of the range — 5 months ago
Citrus and tropical fruit, lychee is prominent, toasty brioche, cream. Fine bubbles, light body, but textured. Lively and exciting from start to finish. — 2 years ago
New Year 2020. Degorged 5/2020. This did seem to have an extra layer of richness and depth — 5 months ago
Domaine Dhont-Grellet champagne extra brut from the village of Cramant. Perhaps also lower atmospheres of pressure?
Fermented in barrel, full malo, 70% 2017 harvest, 30% reserve perpetual since 1986. Aged about 2 years on lees. 1 g/l dosage.
Silky, creamy style with a rich buttery feeling in the palate. This seems like a good choice for rich shellfish dishes. — a year ago
