Overview

Guy Charlemagne

Cuvee Mesnillesime Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut

Style: White, sparkling, dry (12.5% alcohol)

Grape: Chardonnay

Region: Champagne

Notes:

Light gold with green reflection, persistant mousse with very fine bubbles. Powerful yet elegant cocktail of dried fruit, acacia honey and chalk on the nose, giving way to a refined palate of candied lemon, fresh brioche and a hint of smoke. Very long finish of finesse, minerality and distinctive fresh acidity, a reflection of its grand cru terroir. A grand champagne with character from the Côte des Blancs terroirs, specifically from Le Mesnil sur Oger with limestone parcels averaging 65 years of age. This jewel of the Charlemagne house is produced from free run Grand Cru juice, partially vinified in oak barrels, with a very light dosage of 4 grams per litre, and matured 5 to 6 years in chalk underground cellars.

Serving guide:
