Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Some awesome things going on with this champagne:

Grower Champagne
Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
<$50

It's a soft, simple, velvety champagne. Light on its feet with very creamy soapy bubbles, and well applied acidity to clear it away - baked apple, apricot, cinnamon, brioche, flint, white flowers, honeycomb - about 9g dosage, so not on the dry side of Brut, but not near Extra Dry.

Just beautiful juice for the price - it's not toasty and intense, it is a soft and pretty style, but a great example of Chard from Avize - Oger.

Happy Valentines Day!

Domaine Vacheron

Les Romains Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

The 2016 'Les Romains' is simply gorgeous, as it begins with striking aromatics of wildflowers, honey, lychee and cantaloupe that immediately draw you in. The texture and minerality is simply stunning, as flavors of with tree fruit and citrus oil leave a mark. The oily, unctuous character this possesses is found in very few Sauvignon Blancs. An absolutely brilliant wine from one of the leading producers in the region. Drink 2019-2033- 95 — 4 days ago

Veuve Clemence Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Happy President’s Day Weekend. 🇺🇸 I hope you all have the day off tomorrow and can enjoy an extra night of wine indulgence.

Every time I open a bottle of the Launois Veuve Clemence, all I can’t think about is, I still haven’t had a better Blanc de Blanc Champagne at this price point and many others at higher price points yet.

The nose is fantastic...Meyer lemon, lime, grapefruit, ripe pineapple, green melon, green apple, cream soda, lemon meringue, whiff of ginger, soft, understated white spice, sea shells & diary, baguette crust, light volcanic minerals with spring flowers, fruit blossoms and yellow lilies.

The palate is rich, reductive and so fresh. Micro beads with near perfect acidity. Meyer lemon, lime, little bit of orange with a touch of rind, grapefruit, ripe pineapple, green melon, green & golden apple, cream soda, honeysuckle, lemon meringue, caramel notes, whiff of ginger, soft, more pronounced white spice on the palate that really penetrates the palate, sea shells & spray, baguette crust, light volcanic minerals with spring flowers, fruit blossoms and yellow lilies. The finish is rich, elegant, beautifully balanced and persists for minutes.

If you can have wine shipped from a California retailer, you owe it to yourself to try a bottle at only $44.99. Its worth twice that price. K&LWines.com.

Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

What a fantastic BdB ✨ 100% Chardonnay, 60% of which is sourced from Aÿ, and the other 40% coming from renowned Côte des Blancs plots like Avize, Cramant, and Oger. Such suave complexity and depth with a great mouthfeel. Bruised and smoked pear, citrus fruit medley, anise, chalky minerals.

Blanc de Blancs Bekaa Valley Sauvignon Blend 2012

My first experience with a Lebanese wine and I’m loving it. Starts with buttery popcorn on the nose, the palate opens with citrus, and the finish sways back onto the Chardonnay style malo butter. Very interesting blend of flavours. Quite impressed! — 7 days ago

Avizoise Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2006

Valentines Day tipple on Thursday. Pale Gold with fine bead. Yeasty notes with aromas of Lemon, Apple skin and mineral. On the palate - Powerful, not sweet, acid, reflecting a low dosage of 3g/L. Finishing with a dry chalkiness. A good future assured. — 8 days ago

In the name of science, a few champagnes/sparkling wines were sampled today in an effort to help a friend for comparative research reasons. Hard way to spend a Monday...

It hurt me to open this as I knew it would be painfully young...and it was 😔. But, in the name of science, it was analyzed! Most distinctive out of the lineup. Straight up cream soda mousse. Definitely oxidative in style but not channeling any of those sherry like notes. This carried ripe tropical fruits and a touch of honeycomb, versus the ‘13 I opened a few months back that was completely open for business with marzipan & roasted cashews. Hold this.

@Isaac Pirolo : These are such cool wines. The ‘13 BdB I opened back in December was pretty accessible and delicious so if you find a ‘13, don’t hesitate.

'S' Blanc de Blancs Brut Le Mesnil Chardonnay 2002

This is really tightly coiled. Lemon (verbena?), steeliness, lime and chalk. Real purity and clarity on the palate but super tightly wound. This needs time but there’s quality there. — 7 days ago

I think it’ll improve a lot in a few years- but not sure it has the gumption to get that good. We’ll see....
