Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Aoc

Winemaker's Notes:

The champagne house Diebolt-Vallois is to be found in Cramant, a village in the "Côte des Blancs", whose chalky soil makes the perfect home for chardonnay vines. It is certainly one of the finest terroirs in the Champagne region and is the realm of "blanc de blancs" champagnes. The Diebolt family has lived in Cramant since the end of the 19th century, and the Vallois family has been cultivating vines in Cuis since the 15th Century. Although Jacques Diebolt started working with his grandfather, it was not until 1978 that the estate underwent a sea-change with the extension of the estate and the construction first of all of cellars, and then a winery. The Diebolt-Vallois champagne vineyards cover 11 hectares (26 acres) of which the great majority are in Cramant and Cuis, two villages which are classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru respectively. Other plots are at Chouilly (another Grand Cru village) and on the hillsides at Epernay (vineyards called Les Toulettes and Les Hautes Justices). All of these are planted entirely in Chardonnay, the grape used to make blanc de blancs champagne. Some vines on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte de Bar complete the estates holdings, and these are planted with pinot noir and pinot meunier. Grapes: 100% Chardonnay Vinification: Fermentation in thermostatically controlled vats. Blend of wines from two years. Terroir: Cuis, Chouilly, Epernay and young vines from Cramant. Dosage: 6 - 8 g/L Taste: Pale gold, with an energetic mousse. Complex nose offers nutty peach, pear and nectarine, with pungent floral notes suggesting magnolia and jasmine. Showing ripe pear and white peach flavors and a gentle note of clover honey. A subtle buttery tone comes up on the back, deepening the fruit notes and adding complexity.

Goldene Robe mit grünlichem Schimmer. In der Nase schmeicheln florale Aromen und Noten von Honig, Bienenwachs und Röstbrot. Sehr langes Finale.
