Jose Dhondt Brut Blanc de Blancs NV
*The NV Blanc de Blancs is an utterly enticing wine from start to finish.* A sweet, open bouquet leads to an expressive core of fruit as this sublime, pedigreed Champagne opens up in the glass. The wine shows terrific length and vibrancy on the palate, while a pure, creamy finish informed by a light toastiness adds a final dash of flair. This is a gorgeous Champagne from Jose Dhondt.Wine Advocate*The 4 Star restaurant in New York,Per Se, uses this champagne as their "House Pour"*"No. 6 bottle, from José Dhondt, long one of my favorite small producers, was more austere and fresh."*New York Times Dining 12/21/2011 "Blanc de Blancs Champagnes"*
External Reviews for Jose Dhondt Brut Blanc de Blancs
This is intense, lean and stony Champagne from Jose Dhondt in Oger. A blanc de blancs, made entirely of chardonnay from the C�te des Blancs, which is known as chardonnay territory.
The Dhondt family uses a traditional vertical wood press, which permits very slow and fine pressing. The current release of the José Dhondt non-vintage Blanc de Blancs is a very lovely bottle, with delicate mousse, lovely, nascent complexity and great poise and balance on the palate.
