The unique dimension of a pure and intense Blanc de Blancs associated to a finely studied dosage. A strong personality, allied to an exquisite delicateness worthy of the most beautiful gustatory matches (whole baked veal sweetbread, creamy shellfish risotto).

Wine AdvocateEntirely sourced in top grand cru terroirs of the Côte des Blancs-namely in Avize (les Pierres Vaudon), Chouilly (Mont Aigu), Mesnil-sur-Oger (les Coullemets and Chétillon) and Cramant-the 2006 Millésime Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis offers a generous, rich and chalky bouquet of ripe yellow and white-fleshed fruits and vanilla brioche as well as a remarkable purity, precision and freshness. Round and endlessly juicy on the palate, this is a highly elegant, seductive and wonderfully balanced Blanc de Blancs that reveals a concentrated, rich and persistent finish with intense fruit and a chalky texture. Fermented 5% in oak casks and disgorged in April 2018, after 11 years on the lees. This is lot L 306A718 47837; tasted November 2018.

Wine EnthusiastWith grapes coming from the Chardonnay heartland of the Côte des Blancs, this wine is the epitome of structured, textured fruit but with the essential addition of age. Still hinting at freshness and still textured, the wine is also rich with white-fruit flavors cut with limes. Drink from 2020.
