Diebolt-Vallois Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs
WS92: Rich and toasty in a restrained, taut package, offering yeasty bread dough and brioche accents to the notes of apple gelée, crystallized honey and citrus zest. This shows fine texture and bright acidity, with a hint of graphite on the finish.
VM91: Pale yellow. Intense, mineral-tinged citrus and orchard fruit scents show very good clarity and a suave, building floral quality. Racy and precise, with vibrant orange, green apple and honeysuckle flavors complemented by anise and bitter quinine nuances. Closes dry and tight, with very good clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
