The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively with Chardonnay from the 5 villages on the Côte des Blancs with “Grands Crus” classification: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil- sur-Oger and Oger.
To create the Comtes de Champagne, only the “cuvee” is used, for an absolute guarantee of sophistication. Of the wines that make up its composition, 5% have been aged for 4 months in new oak barrels, one third of which are replaced each year.
Characteristics of the Wines: freshness, tautness, purity, saltiness, sophistication and aromatic precision.
Its nose, a true expression of the chalky soil from which it originates, gives it that very airy feeling and delicate tautness. At once focused, complex and restrained, the nose of this 2008 vintage carries us away on aromas of pear, lime, white pepper and orange blossom, cleverly combined with hints of liquorice and slightly toasted notes.
The attack on the palate is vibrant, with great aromatic sophistication leading us to a persistent minerality and tautness.This is followed by a sensation of complex yet mellow freshness, creating the perfect balance between maturity and a full-rounded flavour.The finish offers a fine balance between sophistication and concentration: aromas of white fruits, grapefruit and mint combine in a delicately honeyed finish.
