2008 LENOBLE, Blanc de Blancs. Champagne
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Lenoble are based in the village of Damery in the Cote des Blancs, south of Epernay, and specialise in wines made from the great Chardonnay-dominated villages of the area. This one is made entirely from the Grand Cru of Chouilly.
Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay, 10% fermented in oak. Very low dosage - only 5g residual sugar.
Old Bridge Rating: A fine example of a grower's Champagne. The big houses can make great wines because of the variety of their sources and their blending expertise. This is all about the expression of one grape in one place.
Press Reviews: Jancis Robinson, 17/20:
"Tense and dense on the nose. Great density and edginess. Nothing austere about this; lots to enjoy. Quite serious."
