Champagne Michel Genet MGBB Spirit NV

Côte des Blancs, Champagne, FranceMichel Genet like to call his family “manufacteurs” as in “artisans”, from the word’s Latin origins in manu-factum meaning made by hand. Together with his children Antoine, Vincent and Agnès Genet, they are very hands on and low intervention in every aspect of their estate. This Blanc de Blancs comes from 2 parcels in GC Chouilly, and was primarily based on 2018, with smaller amounts from 2015 and 2016. It was fermented with full MLF, and disgorged October 2021 with 5.5 g/L. Swinging oxidative, with red apple, hazelnuts, pastry, button mushrooms, and wet chalk across a round, cushy mouthfeel, this fuller BdB has a creaminess and weight that would suit proteins at canapés hour or the table.
