Extra Brut Blancs de Blancs
An “aperitif” vintage made-to-measure for sitting down to table. The fresh-mineral-citrusy character epitomizes the domain style, and the aromas of the vineyard soil. This cuvée is a blend of grapes from 7 to 9 distinctive parcels and three successive vintages: a refreshing wine, a clean Champagne.
The grapes are harvested by hand—from 9 different sites—at their maximum ripeness before being destemmed & gently pressed. The fruit undergoes complete malolactic fermentation & no sulfites are added to the blend. The wine is aged in new & old barrels for 12 to 24 months and held in bottle for 1 to 5 years until it is disgorged, corked & released.
Tasting Note: Pale straw in the glass with lovely mineral, dried fruit and citrus zest aromatics that reflect the purest expression of the Montgueux terroir. The palate is vibrantly alive with crisp citrus and melon flavors that are backed by deft acidity & dazzling minerality. The finish resonates with succulent citrus notes.
