Le Mesnil only vinify Chardonnay and this Blancs de Blancs certainly lives up to its name.
Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks at 18 degrees Centigrade. Left on their lees, the wines are cleaned-up and bottled in the following spring. The assemblage is usually around 90% of the current vintage, with 10% reserve wine, made up of one or two older vintages. It is then aged for a minimum of three years on its crown cork before disgorging and receiving a dosage of around 7g/l.
White gold, fine and persistent foam, delicate nose of White flowers. A slightly lemony finish. A wine marked by freshness & finesse, a sublime example which will also age gracefully for a few years.
