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 2015 the blend shipped was 50% from 2009, 30% from 2008 and 20% from 2007. 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 Grands Crus villages of the Côtes des Blancs. With only a 5 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.
