Le Mesnil Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs NV

$89.00
This is100% Chardonnay from the exceptional Grand Cru Village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs – the finest village for Chardonnay in all of Champagne. The wine offers an intensity, minerality and depth of flavour which mark it as exceptional. We found citrus, fresh brioche, fresh mushroom, lemon pith, chalky elements and lightly grilled nuts and brilliant freshness and life. The palate is mineral, intense, crisp yet creamy and precise.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Le Mesnil is the name of perhaps the best Growers Cooperative Champagne House in all of Champagne. Beginning in 1937, they now draw on the resources of 553 different growers, all of whom have their vineyards in Le Mesnil Sur Oger, one of just 17 Grand Cru Vineyards (out of 318 vineyards in the region). Grand Cru is essentially the best of the best and Le Mesnil is considered by many to be the King of Champagne Villages. Its chalk-rich soils and almost exclusive plantings of Chardonnay result in wines with a profound minerality and piercing clarity of fruit.

The Le Mesnil cooperative has the benefit of scale. Their quality is unquestionable too, supplying Krug and Salon for instance whose Le Mesnil offerings retail for $600 and $1600 per bottle respectively. The net result is truly exceptional Champagne at stunning prices.
