NV Champagne Suenen Champagne Grand Cru C + C Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

Cellar Tracker Community 91.3 points (as of 6/3/19) 

John Gilman 93 points  (rated Jab/Feb 2018) - This grand cru blend from Aurélien Suenen has been given the cuvée name of “C + C”, as it is a blend of fruit from the two villages of Cramant and Chouilly, and the authorities do not allow the names of two different grand cru villages to appear on the same label. There was an inaugural release of this wine from the 2013 vintage, which I tasted in the cellars here in its formative stages back in the spring of 2015, but somehow missed it in bottle when it was released last year. This new iteration is from the base year of 2014 and was finished off with a dosage of three grams per liter and was disgorged in September of 2017. The wine is excellent, offering up a youthful and very promising bouquet of apple, pear, complex, limestone minerality, incipient notes of crème patissière, gentle smokiness and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very minerally in personality today, with a rock solid core, fine focus and grip, very elegant mousse and a very long, primary and vibrant finish. This is still a puppy and should be tucked away in the cellar for at least another four years, to allow it to really blossom fully. It will be outstanding with a bit of patience. (Drink between 2022-2050)
