Producer: JL Vergnon
Grape(s): 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: Extra Brut
The Chardonnay comes from two parcels in Le Mesnil sur Oger; 70% from the infamous Les Chetillon and 30% from Mussettes. This is the first vintage of this cuvee and a great birth vintage for it too! Vinified and aged fully in stainless steel and aged minumin of 7 years on the lees. Beuatiful golden green hues like the first summer sunlight with aromas of lemon zest, yellow flowers and freshly baked pastry. Palate is lean and striking with a long silky finish and a touch of moorish salinity at the end.
