A new flagship of this small house. Old chardonnay vines from Avize and Oger were harvested in 2010 and fermented in barrels. This biodynamic wine has butterscotch, brioche, oak, good minerality and balance.
DAVID LECLAPART L’APOTRE, BLANC DE BLANCS EXTRA BRUT 2009
Chalky taste with apricot and tangerine. Herbaceous and brimming over with minerals. It has razor sharp acidity. Made from single vineyard 30- to 50-year-old vines in Trepail village, by a grower that began bottling in 1998.
Powerful, rich and evocative, this is an opulent style champagne. It’s gone through 12 months of ageing in small Argonne oak and six years on the lees. Complex and fresh at the same time with flavours of apple skin, orange pith, spices, eucalyptus, creme brulee and honey.
Bright yellow with green highlights. Brioche, biscuit, a bouquet of white flowers, pear and citrus. From a sixth-generation grower-producer of the Cote des Blancs in the Le Mesnil sur Oger commune, this wine has freshness and refinement.
