Very fine and elegant nose is followed by richness in the mouth – lemon and lemon zest – which seem to to be the signature flavours from le Mesnil. Only 2.5g/l dosage, but there is no harshness. Just about perfect in this style, supremely elegant, this will age gracefully for years.

94pts Wine Advocate– 2004 vintage

The 2004 Chardonnay Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru “Champ d’Alouette” was fermented and aged for six months in oak and offers an intense, pure yet ripe and complex bouquet with spicy-mineral flavors.

Terribly rich and mouth filling on the palate, this is a concentrated yet complex and fruit-intense Chardonnay with firm grip and mineral expression. No malolactic fermentation. Expressive and very promising.

The wine was dosed with 2.5 grams per liter in April 2017. Tasted April 2018
