Pascal Doquet Diapason Le Mesnil Sur Oger Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru

Category:

Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Champagne, France

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes 

Pascal’s grandfather consolidated to one hectare in which Pascal still owns 60 acres of, including “Les Migraines” where he has very old vines, planted in 1929. Approximately half is fermented in enamel and the rest in neutral barrel. It’s as impressive a non-vintage Champagne as is available anywhere. There are aromas of ginger, anise, zest and sandalwood, and the Champagne emphasizes the spicy characteristics of Le Mesnil. The wine finishes with some cut which helps focus the finish.

Decanter – 93 Points

A superb non-vintage blanc de blancs that comes exclusively from the grand cru Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The wine opens with zippy lemon peel, gooseberry and exotic passion fruit aromas. With time, a lovely mineral/saline depth is revealed, with a creamy texture, pleasantly dense mouthfeel and impressive length. Grapes from the ripe 2015 vintage form the base, with the balance completed with a reserve from solera. The oldest vines date to the 1920s; half was fermented in old barrels and half in tank before ageing for six years and disgorging with a dosage of 3.5g/L.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with shellfish, crab, and lobster.
