Half it’s normal rate and one of the iconic Blanc de Blancs Champagnes of the grower movement, here’s such a steal for Jose Dhondt’s workhorse at a price less than remember selling it for a decade ago. We absolutely love being able to bring in top notch bubbles at this magic number, something that has become more and more difficult to do as premiums on great Champagne have gone nowhere but up. A longtime favorite grower and a simply ridiculous rate for such talented hands working small domaine plots in the Cote de Blancs. A longtime favorite and as good of value as we’ve found.
Antonio Galloni 92 points! “The NV Blanc de Blancs shows the more powerful side of Chardonnay in its overall intensity and broad-shouldered frame. Scents of chamomile, lemon oil, white flowers, mint and pastry find resonance on the palate, where the wine offers crystalline purity and tons of energy. Vibrant and pulsating, the Blanc de Blancs is a compelling Champagne to drink now and over the next few years.”
