Disgorged in May 2017, the 2011 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru O.G offers up pretty aromas of yellow citrus fruit, white flowers and crushed stones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, tight-knit and direct palate with a bracing spine of acidity and a bone-dry, chalky finish. 


This 5¬† hectare estate in Mesnil-sur-Oger farms largely organically and harvests late, but the wines are fermented in steel with blocked malolactic fermentation and see minimal dosage, so they are reliably steely, tensile and intensely mineral‚ÄĒeven austere, in the case of some of the cuv√©es reviewed here.


Color : Lemon yellow with a small bead of foam on the
surface.
Nose : Pastry flavors and orange zest. Then more complex with wheat, white fruit, toast, coffee …
Mouth : Fresh and round, vinosity and volume in the mouth. Finale with flavors of biscuits and almonds. Is distinguished from other wines by its greedy and round side.
