There has been a lot of precision in the making of this wine that shows through in the glass. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, sourced from the Grand Cru vineyards of Verzenay, mostly in 2013 with a little reserve wine and during tirage, only 1.6g/l dosage. This Champagne is light and delicate with a huge potential for ageing.
The nose is tight and fresh with crisp green apples, fresh lemons, danish pastry and crushed almonds which all appear again on the palate. They are joined by notes of brioche, fresh button mushrooms, ripe apricots, grissini, quince and white blossom flowers. The bubbles are smooth and creamy with that taut and racy acidity driving the flavours into a long, lingering finish.
There is a falsehood that Non-Vintage Champagne isn’t as complex or cared for, however, JM Labruyère are allowing the fruit, the location and precise winemaking techniques to show that with confidence and know-how handed down through the generations, fine Champagne can be made, vintage declared or not.
