Description

This is the second release from Leclerc Briant’s new clos in Montagne de Reims; the panoramic site was chosen for the longevity it gives its wines, and for their lucid nature. The 2015 vintage was vinified in mixed oak barrels  Eincluding second fill from Haut-Brion Blanc  Egiving it added texture. The nose is pretty and tightly coiled, with white flowers, green apples, nectarines and wild honey.

The palate is cleansing, with racy white-and-yellow fruits, sweet hay, camomile and much more; it’s got lip-puckering tension and salinity. This is finely woven, with beautifully integrated mousse and minerality. Bottled July 2016, disgorged May 2019. Zero dosage.

Drink now to 2035
