Diebolt-Vallois Prestige Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Terroir: Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil s/Oger – 3 villages classed 100% Grand Cru. The soil consists of a thin layer of earth over a chalk base. In general the exposure is towards the East-South-East.
Vinification: Fermentation in thermostatically controlled vats. This is a blend of three years’ wines aged in oak casks. These reserve wines bring richness, complexity and roundness.
Dosage: 3-5 g/l
Wine & Spirits – “It’s a delicate, pure chardonnay that becomes dramatic in its intensity and breadth. The precision of the flavors will serve this well as it ages.” (94 Pts)
Wine Spectator – “This tightly knit Champagne brings something more with each sip, and a hint of peach leads first to ripe apple and quince flavors, then papaya, nut, lemon meringue, ginger, licorice, and grated coconut notes. This is very focused, with racy acidity and fine texture throughout.” (93 Pts)
