Guy Charlemagne Cuvée Mesnillésime Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, Champagne

The name ‘Mesnillésime’ is a play on words—a combination of ‘Mesnil’ and ‘millésime’ or vintage. You see, clever! However, not nearly so clever as this vintage Champagne from Guy Charlemagne.

Sourced exclusively from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, the wine is composed of first Grand Crus selections—this is the Maison's prestige cuvée. Painstaking vinification with partial oak fermentation (sans Malo-lactic) and aged for six years in the house’s chalky limestone cellars.

'…this is the Maison's prestige cuvée'

Extra Brut with just 4g/L dosage, there is little for this wine to hide behind. Nor does it need the cover. Pale yellow with green hues. The persistent effervescence feeds a string of fine bubbles. The powerful and elegant nose dominated by acacia honey opens with notes of candied lemon, smoked and pepper mixture. The unctuous and complex mouth starts on an elegant and discreet woody. It continues with a basket of candied fruits dominated by citrus and leaves a very long finish both fresh and vanilla.

Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
