Jacquart Blanc de Blancs 2013
A vintage wine is the jewel in any collection. It has been finely chiseled from the top growths to capture the quintessential qualities of an outstanding vintage in the bottle. The Champagne Jacquart vintage Blanc de Blancs elevates the spirit of Chardonnay and roots it as much in history as in its own specific provenance. This has pared back aromas of lemon citrus with hints of grilled peaches and a fresh mineral edge. The palate has impressive depth and fruit flesh. Five years on lees has rounded the palate out nicely as it now delivers smooth lemon-curd flavors. A fresh, crisp and mouthwatering finish. A blend of Grand Cru fruit, this well-structured wine is rich while also tense, mineral and with further aging potential. Citrus acidity is allied to crisp apples to produce the fruity side of this well balanced wine. It will be better from 2020.
