Monmarthe Blanc de Blancs 2012

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Under Louis XV, the Monmarthes already owned vines. In 1930, Ernest produced the first bottles of champagne. His great-grandson, Jean-Guy Monmarthe, settled in 1989 at the head of the estate (17 ha, mostly located in the Montagne de Reims). In 2014, he also took over from Gérard Doré (4 ha in Ludes), whose brand he kept.

Produced from a parcel of old vines and from the fine 2012 vintage, a blanc de blancs from the Montagne de Reims: in this sector where the pinots thrive, the chardonnay is making a small place for itself. Here it has produced a champagne whose aromatic expression reflects a stay in barrels of the base wines: grilled, toasted notes combine with very ripe, even stewed, fruit and pastry notes. Citrus fruits, brioche bread and tobacco mingle with oak in a palate that is both ample, powerful and tense, marked on the finish by a touch of bitterness.
