Lieu-dit: Les Mottelettes, 60 Ares | 1,5-acre plot planted in 1961

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay

Vintage: 2014

Dosage: 1,8 grams per liter (Extra-Brut)

Soil: pure chalk lays only 30 centimeters (12in) below the clay topsoil.


Full-bodied, pretty rich, but pure and dry, this is remarkable if not great Blanc de Blancs full of tension, grip, and character. The finish reveals a firm structure, pure minerality, and great length. This is an outstanding Blanc de Blancs from Bouzy.
