The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru is elegance personified. Smoke, minerals, chalk and pears emerge as this generous yet subtle wine opens up in the glass. Sweet floral notes develop with air, but minerality is this wine?s calling card, particularly on the finish, which is incredibly elegant and refined. Simply put, this is gorgeous juice. The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru is 60% 2005 wine, with the addition of 40% reserve wines from 2004 and 2002. Though labeled premier cru, only the fruit from Vertus is premier, all of the fruit from Cramant, Avize and Oger is grand cru. This bottling was aged in stainless steel and bottled with 4 grams of dosage.
