One of the best and finest blanc de blancs there is. Lush and rich but with great finesse, a fruit bomb that oozes its soil and minerality, medium bodied so its great with food but can be enjoyed by itself. We love it and think is a great chardonnay champagne. — a month ago

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.

Disg. 2/15 (08 base)- To no surprise, this disgorgement is straight fire. Rich, intense and layered with infinite flavors and aromas. There is vivid energy, exceptional detail and so much depth and presence on the palate. My favorite Lieux-Dits showing at its finest. — 20 days ago
Pale old gold with a surfeit of tiny bubbles, very attractive. The nose shows so much citrus upon opening. Quince and peach are dominant at first with green apples coming in. The customary yeasty aromas tend to fresh vanilla brioche bread. There’s also a really nice touch of spices here that helps to distinguish it from the pack.
Blanc de Blancs from the Grand Cru villages of Cramant, Chouilly, and Mesnil sur Oger. A blend of three vintages and disgorged in November of 2018 with a lowish dosage of 4.5 g/l. Creamy with racy acidity. Finesse over power. Delicate and well structured.
Quite rich and autolytic in nature. That spice is present on the palate along with more citrus fruits and just a bit of smoke. A nice snippet of oak says hello and goodbye and then the chalk takes over. The finish is a bit short and overall you’re left wanting a little more but this is fun and elegant. — 9 days ago
