Dhondt Grellet


Les Nogers Terroir de Cuis Extra Brut 1er Champagne Blanc de Blanc

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

"Dans un Premier Temps..." Vignerons Brut Chardonnay

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.

Vieilles Vignes Cramant Extra Brut Champagne Grand Cru Chardonnay

Andrew Holod

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.
