Dhondt-Grellet Les Nogers Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Champagne Premier Cru 2013
The 2012 Les Nogers cuvée from Adrien Dhondt is a Blanc de Blancs champagne that offers great aromatic richness and great complexity.
It is a cuvée made only from Chardonnays from the Premier Cru terroir of Cuis, on the Côte des Blancs. A terroir renowned for its very chalky soil. The vineyard is on average fifty years old, with a lower yield but a better concentration of aromas. This vineyard is worked in the organic way, with plowed soils and herbal treatments.
The grapes are harvested at optimal maturity, when pressing, only the first press (the cuvée) is used. The musts are vinified in stainless steel tanks and then aged 8 months on fine lees.
The Cuvée Les Nogers 2012 Dhondt-Grellet is dosed in Extra Brut (2,4g / l) in order to preserve a great freshness and a beautiful expressiveness.
It is a cuvée produced in a very confidential manner. Thus only 4000 bottles were produced.
