Champagne Nominé Renard Brut Blanc de Blancs NV

Côte des Blancs, Champagne, FranceBased in Villevenard (Vallé de la Marne), the Nominé family's vineyards extend over 20 hectares, spread over the slopes of Petit Morin, Sézannais, and the Marne valley. The diversity gives 3rd generation Simon Nominé lots to work with in his blends. This BdB comes from 5 plots across 3 villages in the Petit Morin and Côte de Sézanne, and from vines 20-45 years on chalk, limestone, and silica. It spent 48 months on lees and was disgorged with 9 g/L. This BdB has a lovely tight frame, with deep chalk and lemon pith laced with fine salinity through the lingering saline finish. Very polished and smart, this eats up the elevated dosage.Tasted: 01 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
