Gaston Chiquet Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs d Ay
Vibrant yellow-green hue, fine mousse. Delicate and fruity nose: citrus, pineapple, grapefruit with a hint of lemon. Lively palate with the finesse of Chardonnay: citrus, white flowers, mandarin, fresh sage and long finish on freshness. Aperitif Champagne par excellence.
WS91: A chalky version, with bright acidity and a lively bead framing hints of pineapple, pastry cream, glazed apricot and fresh ginger. Focused and finely knit.
RP90: The NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs d'Ay is 100% Chardonnay, quite unusual for a village known for its Pinots. It is a pretty, supple wine typical of the year in its soft fruit and accessible personality. As always, this wine is much more about Chardonnay from Ay than it is about anything else. It shows lovely nuance in a crystalline expression of fruit supported by clean mineral notes.
