EB Cuvée Désir Extra Brut Doyard-Mahé Champagne Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs Vertus Premier Cru

Champagne

Grape Variety

Chardonnay

The trend for extra dry Champagnes continues. In some ways, sugar can hide or cover a multitude of sins, so in order to produce a top Extra Brut, only the best Chardonnay grapes can be used. Cuvée Desir has aromas reminiscent of spring meadows and fresh hay, combined with stone fruits and a savoury edge. On the palate a complex blend of honeysuckle passionfruit, lemon and grapefruit are all present. Based on the 2015 vintage with 30% older base wines, it was bottled in early 2016. This extended yeast autolysis adds complexity and depth while remaining fresh as a daisy. Mango and grapefruit pith flavours continue to persist on the palate.
