Jean Laurent Cuvee Blanche
Pinot Blanc is one of Champagne's forgotten grape varietals, of which only around 100 hectares are still cultivated, principally in the Côte des Bars.
Bottled in 2015, this is an assemblage of 4 years, 2014-13-12-11.
It spends several years on the lees and is lightly dosed at disgorgement.
When we tasted this we were struck by the light lemony freshness both on the nose and the palate. A beautiful champagne.
Composition: 100% Pinot Blanc
Added sugar: 4g/l
Grapes harvested: 2014, with reserve wines from the previous 3 years.
Date of disgorgement: See back of Bottle
