Champagne Huré Frères L’Inattendue NV

Champagne, FranceThis has chardonnay's laser focus, along with Montagne de Reims' generosity, and François Huré's thoughtful farming and light touch. From plots planted in 1982 and 1989 at Les Paquies (Rilly-La-Montagne) and Les Sentiers (Ludes), on calcareous clays, this was vinified half in oak, and is entirely from the 2015 vintage. This spent 4 years on lees prior to disgorgement with 3.5 g/L. Lemon meringue, green apple flood a chalky base, with a fine grip around the sides and an easy, effortless elegance. Impressive now, and will continue to hold.Tasted: 26 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 82.00 consignment Producer: Champagne Huré FrèresDistributors: Halpern
