The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru V.O. (Version Originale) is a massive wine boasting superb concentration and a level of textural richness that is unprecedented in Champagne. Here the fruit coats every inch of the palate in a stunning, virtuosic expression of ripe fruit. Smoke, minerals and incense add a visceral, exotic dimension to the wine that is impossible to resist. Version Originale is Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Oger, vintages 2002, 2001 and 2000. In a word: awesome Disgorged: November 5, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
