NV Diebolt-Vallois Cuvee Prestige Blanc de Blancs Brut

Merchant Reviews
Jacques Diebolt himself provided the fiche technique: 100% hand-harvested Chardonnay from Cramant, Chouilly, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, three of the most important Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs, with primary and malolactic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel, followed by three years in 40hl neutral oak casks and 7g/l of dosage.Once again, use a full-sized, all-purpose wine glass with an egg-shaped bowl, and don’t fill it more than one third of the way. The color is a lovely pale green-gold, with a creamy, streaming bead of tiny precise bubbles. At first, the elegant Chardonnay nose suggests ripe green apples and white flowers, with peaches, citrus, fresh fennel, and coconut moving in and out of the foreground as the wine evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine is sleek, firm, and energetic, with a fine mineral structure, and a feathery, delicate mousse. The flavors echo the nose, with more white flowers, green apples, caraway seeds, minerals, and lemon zest, and the long clean finish is carried by lively citric acidity and the velvety, persistent mousse. “As spring-like as a flower filled orchard” from Marcel Mastrojanni, with “exceptional inner mouth energy” (and 93+ points) from Stephen Tanzer, the world’s stingiest wine critic. Drink now – 2018.
