We have been awaiting the release of this Cuvee as its one of the most serious values from Jose Michel. The same 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Meunier blend as their Special club Cuvee, but from younger vines. This has been on the lees for a while now and since we are the direct importer for Jose Michel they released this just for us. Floral and very precise on the nose with toasted almonds and stone fruit. The palate has a beautiful richness from the excellent Pinot Meunier with an added elegance and delicate touch from the Chardonnay. The Grand Vintage sees partial oak aging and is finished with an 8g/l dosage. One of our favorite cuvees from Jose Michel and incredible in this vintage. A pleaser Champagne perfect for a house pour and only available here!
