Notes

 
Base year, 2010. 100% Chardonnay from Léclepart’s estate vineyards in Trépail. Fermented in both enameled steel tanks and used barrels. Zero dosage. Light yellow; intense aromas of chalk, yellow plum, pear and a hint of biscuit. Medium-full with excellent concentration; a huge mid-palate, Outstanding persistence, very good acidity and a powerful finish, that is earthy and pungent. Wonderful varietal purity – outstanding Blanc de Blancs. If not for the bubbles, you might imagine you are drinking a Grand Cru Chablis! This will improve for at least another 10-12 years – and perhaps longer.
 
Food pairing:
Lobster with vanilla sauce
