Between the 2 families that operate this estate, there is a long winemaking tradition here, and by long I mean a tradition dating back to the 15th Century. Needless to say, Diebolt-Vallois has greatly contributed to the character of what is recognized as traditional Blanc de Blancs Champagne. The classics are a classic for a reason, and this Blanc de Blancs’ consistently checks off all of the signature boxes. Typically sourced from estate owned vines in Cuis, Chouilly, Epernay and Cramant; base wine normally reflects the previous 2 vintages. Classic aromatics of green apples, citrus peel and brioche lure you into a familiar creamy roundness with a racy backbone acid structure. Finishes crisp, chalky and clean with lovely floral sensations leaving a lasting impression. Year in and year out, this cuvée continues to be a standout among its price category. Sized to share, or not.
