Description & Technical Information
-
With parcels in Cramant and Cuis, Dhondt Grellet focuses on producing superb wines from the Cote des Blancs. Adrien Dhont-Grellet, the son of the founders is currently in charge and makes the wines. He is focusing on biodynamic farming which has translated into vivid champagnes from great parcels across the Côte des Blancs.

This NV Blanc de Blancs is all from two vineyard parcels in the top Grand Cru Village of Cramant with the average vine age over 55 years old. The wine is fermented in older oak barrels and partially go through malolactic fermentation to soften the acids.

Tasting Note: The first aromatics show off the origins of the grapes with that chalky character and then you see the ripe lemons and apple. On the palate you see some of the tropical fruits from the warm base year, pineapple and a hint of guarva. Very well balanced with a good clean mineral finish
