Yeasty, marmalade and butter-biscuity! Lemon peel, olive oil, hazelnut and sesame. Fantastic texture, lively mousse, with a pronounced lemon after initial brioche. Clean as white marble; chalky, with a powdered lemon veracity. Dried violets and a touch of chicory flower. Creamy throughout and truly extraordinary! #GrandCru #grandcruclassé #grandcruvalue #grandcruclasse #champagnes #champagneday #champagnealldamnday #bubbles #bubblesalldamnday #champagnecampaign #frenchwine #blancdeblancs

Major surprise. Fresh and vibrant, with great juiciness and chalky finish.

Very very very strong contender. Smooth, but mascular and dense, very fruit forward, fantastic minerality. Thank you @Gary Westby for the pick. Great stuff!
