L' Accomplie Premier Cru Extra Brut Vieilles Vignes Champagne Blend

Year-end dinner with great friends at one of our favorite wine bars.

Good concentration of stone fruit and yeasty notes and some saline qualities. Perfect way to kick off dinner and get the palate salivating.

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.
