'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. — 2 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....

Rosé de Saignée 1er Cru Champagne Pinot Noir

Soigné Saignée or should it be Saignée Soigné? No matter, this is excellent. 100% Pinot Noir that is rosé because of skin contact and not due to the addition of still red wine. Extraordinary complexity and yet there’s a distinctive voice to it. Strawberry, loads of herbs, with a gamy character and a lively attitude. Superb. — 4 days ago

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!

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.
