This excellent-value Blanc de Blancs is made by Jean-Paul Deville at his farm in the village of Verzy 20km to the south-east of Reims. Jean-Paul is a maker to watch and his wines are complex and ripe with pronounced mineral notes. This Blanc de Blancs is no exception. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, this is a dry and fresh fizz which spends 5 years in bottle before release. A vibrant aperitif!
A pale gold in the glass. On the nose, notes of citrus and exotic fruits. On the palate, precise and clean yet round and rich with further citrus fruit flavours. Great acidity leading to a lingering finish. Try with an avocado and asparagus sald, linguine, clams and fennel or sole goujons.
