Champagne, France. 12.5%
Non dosage wines have appeared to me to be more miss than hit, but this non-dosage blanc de blanc really hits the mark in a vinous savoury mineral style. Aromas of rocks – really. Not a pretty Champagne, but not trying to be. Nor big and masculine. This really is different, highly successful – though I in no way am suggesting that other houses try to go for this style.
Very impressive bubbles that lasted to the last glass even when consumed over two days.
