Le Mont Benoit Vieilles Vignes Villers Aux Noeuds 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2014

No chill from Savart here. Made the mistake of bringing a magnum of this to the mother-in-law's birthday party... Packed with middle aged aunties... So you can imagine how a brutally acidic, highly mineralic, dry champagne went... Let's just say the NZ savvy b was a bigger hit. Thankfully, the mother-in-law's got great taste and she loved it.

A champagne that begs for air. Austere essentially - only the final remnants of the wine really showcased the brilliant fruit. The nose is incredibly floral with light bread notes, orange rind and pear. The palate is intense and cuts like a knife. Red berries, lemon juice, lime, marzipan, salt... Really salty. I like this wine now, but it really needs time to flesh out and show its best.

NB: So different from the Ledru despite having nearly the same composition. Ah! The wonders of wine. Hard to nail the reason why, but I suspect maker's mark is probably the biggest factor. Both vibrates with great inner energy, but I can't help but feel that the Savart's just spitefully lean 🤣 Just a gut feeling as the site (and possibly base vintage too) is different.

Le Mont Benoit 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2018

Lots of complex aromatics that became even more expressive as the bottle warmed up. Some oxidative notes mixed with bread and flowers. In the mouth this leans to the vinous side. Acid driven which allows it to be consumed through out the meal. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish — 4 months ago

Millésime Brut Champagne 2006

One of my pulls for the night. It was a pleasure circling back on Charpentier’s vintage champagne. Had the 2006 last time but this 2008 is the definite winner. Great vintage, awesome wine. — 4 years ago

Blanc de Blancs Fût de Chêne Premier Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Disgorged June 2017. Has nice brioche and spice notes that interplay with lemon peel, pear and green apple fruit. Palate has a lush quality seems to be from the barrel aging. Superb length and gains complexity as it sees air and warms a touch. — 4 years ago
