The base wine for this stunningly complex Chardonnay based Champagne comes from the 2013 vintage. While not certified Aurelien Suenen farms all his plots organically and uses only natural yeast. This C&C is a blend of two Grand Cru villages which explains the remarkable complexity and intensity. Poached pears, holiday spice, lemon oil and just a brush of chalky minerals. Expansive on the palate, as is Suenen’s style, the finish goes on forever. Very serious wine here.
