Ulysse Collin BdB extra brut espectacular; 94 RP
The NV (2007) Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs rocks. It is a big, mouth-filling wine loaded with extravagant Chardonnay fruit. This is a decidedly extroverted, powerful vintage of the Blanc de Blancs, but I am quite confident the wine will settle down with further time in the bottle. Juicy peaches, mango, passion fruit and French oak wrap around the sensual, enticing finish. This is a dazzling showing from Collin. The 2007 includes 35% 2006 reserve wine. This bottle was disgorged March 1, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
I visited Olivier Collin in early April, in the middle of what turned out be a very early bud break. The pristine, immaculately tended vineyards point to a grower absolutely obsessed with quality, which comes through in the wines as well. I tasted a number of Champagnes, including three stunning 2008s that have not yet been released. Collin is another of my very favorite growers. I never miss a chance to drink these wines.
Prueba tambien algo de Pascal Doquet, tiene un Grand Cru Le Mesnil muy bueno y a un buen precio y de Jacques Lassaigne, un elaborador de Montgueux extraordinario, su Vignes de Montgueux por ejemplo..
He probado este verano un Napoleon añada de 1996 de Prieur muy bueno en mi opinion.
