Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Much bigger and more oxidative than the Comtes, almost hard to believe they are both BdB from the same vintage. Round with medium acidity and extremely toasty. — 3 days ago

Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Champagne Chardonnay

NV bottle from circa 1990. Dark honey gold in color, with nutty and slight sherry like notes given the age. Bubbles were in form and energetic. #magnumsshowyoucare — 13 days ago

Anecdote Lieu Dit Les "Varosses" Champagne

Lovely fruit on the nose controlled fruit and sharp minerality on the palate. Some green apple skin. Super well made. Rocky finish. Very good.

As this opens just wonderfully rich like very good champagne can be. Really persistent. Zingy acids balance it out.

LES LUMIERES GRAND CRU EXTRA BRUT CHAMPAGNE Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2008

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2008 Extra Brut Les Lumières Grand Cru is a blend of 65% Chardonnay (from Avize and Mesnil) and 35% Pinot Noir (from Aÿ) that spent ten years on its lees before being disgorged and given just the smallest touch of dosage. Creamy, resonant and expressive, the 2008 has so much to offer. Even so, it clearly needs at least a bit of time in bottle to be at its best. Tropical accents provide a hint as to where the 2008 will go over the next handful of years. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2019) — a day ago

Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2002

Dull yellow gold. Nice fine bubbles. Citrus focused nose. Notes of lemon, bread yeast, wet stone and some white acacia flowers. Great energy in the mouth with a long finish. This is top notch juice. Still a baby. — 12 days ago

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Always a pleasure with the slightly oxidized style and powerful brioche, honey covered nuts on the palate. Great intensity complemented by the right acidity as well. — 13 days ago

Resonance Millesime Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2009

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2009 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Resonance Grand Cru brings together the natural radiance of the year with the pedigree of the Chetillons lieu-dit in Mesnil that forms the core of the blend. Apricot, tangerine oil, yellow flowers and light tropical overtones grace this generous, open-knit Blanc de Blancs from Vergnon. Disgorged: February 7, 2017.

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2012

It is almost unfair to rate this. A welcoming nose of citrus and apples leads to an austere mineral driven palate.
The finish is suffocated by an unyielding youthful structure . It did not feel like this vintage had the robust levels of acidity that the 2008 demonstrated..
