Château de Bligny Blanc de Blancs NV

Champagne, FranceThis chardonnay comes entirely from the Aube, where blanc de blancs are still fairly rare. Though the house style is amply rich with green apple, almond brioche, full cream, and oxidative notes, those kimmeridgian soils and chardonnay backbone holds this wine upright. Vines have been planted in Bligny since the 12th century, and the château's current vineyards cover twenty hectares. All the plots that were well-reputed in the past have been replanted, including the former vineyards of the Sainte Euladie Priory founded centuries ago, the Bernardin vineyards that once belonged to the monks of the famous Cistercian abbey of Clairvaux, and the Val-l’Ermite.Tasted: 07 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 55.00 private wine shops Producer: Chateau de BlignyDistributors: Stile Brands
