Champagne Virginie T Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut NV
This bottle is made from a blend of the best Chardonnays and 6 years of ageing in the cellar. This is the product of the mother and son duo with limited production of this cuvee (only 5000 bottles), and the astonishing pale golden colour makes it very rare on the market.
Grape Varietals & Region: This Blanc de Blancs is a blend of several villages, but two grands crus express themselves particularly in this cuvée. In Cramant, the style of the chardonnay is full-bodied and lively. A brioche expression, which over time magnifies the blend. It is a vintage that they have been working on for several generations, especially when we were making the Comtes de Champagne from the Taittinger house, but other houses like Krug are also established there. In Mailly-Champagne, the style of the chardonnay brings sharpness and ageing to the blend. Grand cru from the northern flank of the Montagne de Reims, where the pinot noir thrives, the chardonnays are rare and express the roasted hazelnut, while bringing finesse, complexity and length.
Taste Profile: Champagne Virginie T Blanc de Blancs has a pale golden yellow with very fine and delicate effervescence. It has a refined floral nose that reveals hints of white flowers and lemon. The palate has great volume and a full body that is well-structured and has great balance with its acidity. The mineral notes express its long maturity and finishes with a refreshing touch. This is a great champagne for a fancy aperitif.
