De Saint-Gall, Orpale Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru, Champagne, Champagne, France, 2004

Orpale Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru
Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
100% Chardonnay
Our judges loved the way that the 2004 Champagne vintage is looking at present, especially in Blanc de Blanc form, hence this second Best in Show pick from the category. This is the slightly paler of the two wines, with very fine bubbles and a tenacious snowy crown. The scents take you back to its vineyard origins and the fine limestones of the region, with scents of rain on chalky clay, sap and crushed winter holly and ivy leaves, just backed by a little teasing warmth from its cellar years spent on yeast lees. On the palate, it's incisive, pure, long and grainy with a fine chalk drift to it: restrained, pure and elegant Champagne of great class. Drink 2019-2024
