Oiry Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Clear medium gold that’s strikingly attractive. The nose is so pretty and deep with lemon and herbal aromas immediately. There are some almond notes after a bit of time along with delicate flowers. The chalk here is incredible and long. Peaches and pears, with apples and moist limestone.

The word that instantly comes to mind with this champagne is purity. It’s so pure, so alive, so vibrant. And such a good pure representation of the terroir. From Oiry in the Côte des Blancs and based from 2016 vintage. This is an intense wine and probably not for everyone, but it’s so charming and precise. Beautifully racy acidity and exquisite structure. Fresh as hell and sharp, in that good way.

That Grand Cru fruit struts its stuff in the mouth. The chalk just screams at you until you fall head over heels in love. The citrus begins to shine along with more almonds and toasted bread. Long finish with a small bite of spice. Superbly spectacular. A real gem of a champagne.

More linear than the Suenen, excellent but not sure about the value prop here, was expecting a bit more complexity for the cost — 4 years ago

C+C Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

A couple of years on the cork has really added to the experience.
Expressive nose of lemon curd, lime zest, almonds with precise mineral accents. Pure chalky Chard flanks with jut a touch of lees derived richness. Lemon peel and mineral mingle on the precise finish. Now for 3 to 5 years. Disgorged Dec 2019 from 2016 vintage

Les Robarts Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2013

Tight bubbles, sharp acidity, hints of brioche and rubber. Balanced out by juicy fruit and with a finish that lasts for days and days. Strong alcohol on opening, so open for at least 20 minutes prior to drinking. Great to pair with food. — 2 years ago
