Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs NV Champagne cuvee is produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Cellarmaster, Cédric Thiébault, sources the grapes exclusively from six Grand Cru villages: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Oiry. This cuvee is the fruit of a unique and very specific method of champagne making that has been perpetuated by Besserat de Bellefon since 1930. This consists of adding less “liqueur de tirage” (a mix of sugar, yeast and must) at the moment of bottling which creates a lighter, more diaphanous formation of effervescence. A distinctive feature of this Blanc de Blancs is the absence of malolactic fermentation. Aged for 3 years on lees, a minimum of six months after disgorgement. Residual sugar: 8g/l. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Lovely citrus notes accentuated by minerality and salinity. Delicate with soft whiffs of wet stones.

Palate: Fresh citrus fruit, lemon and lime. mid-palate has subtle nuances of baking spices.

Finish: Taut with its refreshing acidity and minerality.
