Soft stone fruit. I want to curl up with a bottle of this on my patio.

First release ever from a young couple Aurelie and Loic. 100% Chardonnay from the closest Champagne vineyards to Paris, farmed organically since they took over in 2011.

Biting! This is saline, limestone, some anise, a hint of stone fruit. I’ve never had a bland de blancs like this. There is no bread or yeast. It reminds me of chenin bland mixed with Chablis. Definitely awesome with food. It opens over time with a tiny bit more fruit (green apple) and herbs, but man is this razor sharp. Perfect over many hours on a warm afternoon/evening. 2014 base, disgorged 2018. Nondosage.

Zero dosage. Bright, crisp, stoney minerality, citrus and green apple. Focused. A bit more roundness would have made this even better.

Compact and intense with plenty of green apple and citrus. Long pretty finish. Excellent balance.

Fun new find. Thanks to my friends at Bay Grape. Richness without being oxidative and a nice cut to the finish. Very pure and focused.
