The worlds greatest Champagne that is only produced in exceptional years, it's that simple! 98 points of utter perfection, this will leave you speechless.A year marked by frequent changes in weather, ranging from sunny conditions in June and July, a cool August and then a return to sunny weather in September. The vintage benefited from the slow-ripening conditions afforded by the late season.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Unwinding in the glass with scents of citrus pith, smoke, crisp green apple, Anjou pear, white flowers and subtle hints of fresh herbs. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and incisive, it's fine-boned and precise, with a bright spine of acidity, an elegantly fleshy core of fruit and a pretty, pinpoint mousse.

Expert review

The supremely elegant nose has a dazzling array of scents ranging from herbs, spices, and flowers to pineapple and pear. The attack is power-driven, but a backbone of racy acidity brings vivacity and propels the wine to a weightless, airy finish. Not as dense as many Salon Champagnes, but this remains a singular and impeccably elegant vintage. Best to be patient and drink from 2030 onwards. 98 points

Decanter Magazine

The Grape

Blanc de Blancs

French for “white of whites”, Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine made entirely from Chardonnay grapes. Made famous in Champagne, these wines have an incredible purity and linearity about them and express with intense lemon and apple-like fruit flavours, usually with an underlying seam of minerality and precise acidity.
