Doyard Cuvée Vendémiaire, Blanc de Blanc Premier Cru Brut 75cl

Doyard Cuvée Vendémiaire, Blanc de Blanc Premier Cru Brut

A blend of wines from three years; during 2017 the blend shipped was 50% from 2012, 30% from 2011 and 20% from 2010. About 40% of the base wines are fermented in oak barrels where they undergo a partial malolactic fermentation, the balance was fermented in stainless steel tank. The grapes mostly come from parcels harvested in Premiers and Grands Crus villages of the Côtes des Blancs. With only a 4 g/l dosage the wine initially seems very dry with a vibrant acidity; this opens up quickly to show a well-developed fruit character with brioche and honey sitting alongside herbal notes and dried tropical fruits; the finish is long, minerally and elegant.
