    2018 Dhondt Grellet Dans un Premier Temps Champagne

    • $165.00


    Adrien’s intention with this cuvée is to represent three of the main villages he works with – Sezanne, Cuis, and Avenay Val d’Or. The blend is 50% Chardonnay from Sezanne, 30% Pinot Noir from Avenay Val d’Or and 20% old vine Pinot Meunier from Cuis. The base vintage (2017) makes up 70% of the blend with the remainder a perpetual reserve going back to 1986. Such a wonderful introduction to the range. Citrus, white peach and savoury nutty complexity greet you on the nose. There’s much intensity to the mineral lift too. Very attractive chalk is a welcomed addition. The palate is fine elegant and graceful. Beautifully poised with great fruit concentration. Dosage is 3g/L
