Clos du Mesnil Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 1982

🏅Rating 97+/100 (4,75⭐)

Clos du Mesnil is a 1.84-hectare vineyard in Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger surrounded by the walls. Its location and microclimate define a distinct terroir for Chardonnay which is renowned in Champagne as much as Montrachet in Burgundy.

This precious CdM'82 I shared with my champagne fellows on the eve of COVID-19 crisis. Memories that CdM definitely imprints in our minds and deep emotions which stay forever.

Perfectly aged multilayered wine with a complex tertiary bouquet to die for. Roasted nuts, honey, chalkiness and underlying pronounced acidity. So joyful!

Solo in Remi Krug terms, but the power of its voice equals to the orchestra.

Dorine Le Mesnil Sur Oger Champagne Blend

Craving some bubbles? This Champagne from Launois is a good option at a great price! 🥂🇫🇷

Aromas of bread and pastries blended with a mineral and creamy texture. It is a Blanc de Blancs.

Cheers!

Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2008

Off the Grasings list in Carmel. Light straw color. Great energy in the glass. Notes of light citrus, white orchard fruits and crushed white stone. Has a memorable mousse in its impact. Got better with a few hours of air. Top notch. Salon quality at a more reasonable price. — a month ago

Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 dinner, our first in +8mo. Following the reasonable NY State dining regulations, seated and masked. While a new experience, it was well worth it to see our core group again.

Suenen

Oiry Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Holy mackerel. Second bottle from Suenen that’s lights out good. Intense, mind-bending notes of pawpaw, yellow and greengage plum, green and golden apple, lemon, walnut, and loads of classic buttered gently toasted brioche scents. Rowdy acid, salty, loads of minerals on the palate, looong finish and fine bead. Compared to the C + C, this seems less made for immediate drinking and likely to benefit from some cellaring. Lights out good. Base ‘16 disgorged ‘19 — 2 days ago

@Aravind Asok I think Suenen’s are the best NV bottlings!

This was suppose to be a Friday night happy Champagne toast. But like Neapolitan, we drink Champagne in good & bad times.

We raise a glass in celebration of one of the greatest women of our time. Ruth, you were a true champion of Justice for the people. Rest in power. You have earned it. Can’t think of many more deserving. You wanted to hang in there for the people. We are forever sorry destiny had other plans. “2020, The Year of the Apocalypse!”

It has been a long time since I’ve had a Nicolas Feuillatte anything and never had their Rosé until It was at Costco for just over $30. I thought to myself time to give it a try & grabbed one.

The nose reveals; black cherries, strawberries, deep, ripe, watermelon, pomegranate & cranberry juice, hints of tangerine & even less rhubarb, cherry kirsch, good presence of yeastiness, bread dough, baguette crust, oyster shells, sea spray, some white spice, watermelon Jolly Rancher/fruit roll ups, fruit tea, saline, grey volcanics, soft chalky powder, candied, red florals that are brilliant with pink & red roses.

The palate is; round, thick, rich, lush & highly polished. Micro oxygenation. The fruits are very ripe, deep and juicy. Black cherries, strawberries, deep, ripe, watermelon, pomegranate & cranberry juice, hints of tangerine & even less rhubarb, cherry kirsch, good presence of yeastiness, bread dough, baguette crust, oyster shells, sea spray, more white spice on the palate with heat, watermelon Jolly Rancher/fruit roll ups, fruit tea, saline, just a splash of herbaceousness stingy, grey volcanics, soft chalky powder, candied, red florals that are brilliant with pink & red roses. The acidity is round & lively. The long finish is nicely balanced fruit & earth with a long set of spice that persists minutes.

Serviceable at this price point but, it’s not going to replace my BSR & Ruinart N/V Rosé habit.
