Like Scrooge...Fairly austere and took a little while to give a little. 30% 2009, 40% 2010 and 30% 2011.

The profile of this elegant Grand Cru is somewhat reminiscent of Muscadet, with chalk-driven soils of the C么te de Blancs showing through. Lilbert Fils Blanc de Blancs is all about the acidity鈥攙ibrant, exceptionally pure and steely acidity coursing throughout, enlivened by chalky notes, tart green apple, lime zest and white grapefruit on a lengthy, mouthwatering finish. The nose has familiar biscuit notes with top notes of white flowers and citrus.

Tasting this again and it鈥檚 even better the second time around. Medium gold with sparse, teeny tiny bubbles. Exquisite creaminess and richness which surpasses the effervescence. The nose is a bit stunning with light touches of warm, toasty bread and lychee. Lovely citrus fruit is a constant and consistent throughout this Blanc de Blancs. White blossoms and lemon zest. Slivered almonds as a faint whisper. Intoxicating.

Produced at a lower pressure than the majority of champagnes and aged for three years, this is a wine of pure finesse. It鈥檚 so elegant and magisterial. So smooth and delicate. Pure Chardonnay from the C么te des Blancs and three Grand Cru villages of Cramant, Chouilly, and Oiry. Based mainly on the 2015 vintage with the balance from the previous, there is a definite sense of maturity here.

Fresh, fruity and graceful on the attack. Fresh herbs and chalky minerality. Baked breads shine through along with green apples and roasted nuts. A tremendous amount of bright citrus goodness that just goes on and on and on. Drink now. Or wait. You really can鈥檛 go wrong. Nowhere near the peak of its powers, but so luxurious right now.

Low production. Exceedingly high quality. Produced with lower pressure but results in much, much joy. A light golden robe with not many bubbles due to the low pressure. Very creamy however. In that good way. Quite mineral on the nose with an abundance of floral scents. Croissants and orange peel with a schmear of honey. Those citrus aromas really start to take over after time in the glass.

Pure Grand Cru Chardonnay from Cramant in the C么te des Blancs. Consisting of 35/65 of the 2014 and 2015 vintages and disgorged in 2020 with an Extra Brut dosage of 3 g/l. This is one of those non vintage bottles that makes you reconsider not aging them. It鈥檚 so clear that this will continue to grow and blossom and be even more stunning a few years down the road.

Subtle and soft with high acid. Saline precision and tension for days. So generous on the palate even at this youthful point in its journey. Fresh citrus fruits tickle the tongue while herbs hold your attention. Long finish with a bite of spice. Will be excellent if you have patience and hold. Or you could be like me and drink now.

Definitely my favorite new Champagne encountered in 2014. Terrifically fine, laser focus and drive. #screwratings
