1998 Krug "Clos du Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 100 points Wine Enthusiast: "A wine that has created its own universe. It has a unique, special softness that allies with the total purity that comes from a small, enclosed single vineyard. The fruit is almost irrelevant here, because it comes as part of a much deeper complexity. This is a great wine, at the summit of Champagne, a sublime, unforgettable experience."
Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne: 93 pts Wine Spectator, 90 pts Wine Enthusiast. This Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Grand & Premier Cru Chardonnay. The feature that sets this stainless steel fermented wine apart from other Blanc de Blancs is the combination of grapes from both the Côtes de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, giving it a more rounded style. My two cents - Superb. Could drink it all day.
Fortnum and Mason - Blanc de Blancs Champagne & Ice Bucket
Les Roises comes from 60-year-old vines on clay-rich soils. What makes it so impressive is how its incredible breadth and depth are married to tension and rigorous detail. The combination is thrilling. Compared to Collin’s other Blanc de Blancs, Les Pierrières, Les Roises is expansive, working on an extremely complicated grandeur of scale. #wine #france #champagne #collin
