“Champagne’s Chardonnay epicenter is the Côte des Blancs, and within that sub-region, the Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger reigns supreme. This is where you go for the ultimate Blanc de Blancs experience!”

If you love elite grower Champagnes, the village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger is an embarrassment of riches. Smack-dab in the heart of the Chardonnay-rich Côte des Blancs, this is the kind of town where you might drive off the road if you’re not careful, given the who’s-who of producers distracting you at every turn: Claude Cazals, Pierre Moncuit, André Robert, Pierre Peters…these are just a few of the top names in this 100% Chardonnay, 100% Grand Cru village, and Michel Turgy also demands inclusion on that list.

The refinement and star-bright personality of this Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is evident from the first sip. In the glass, it’s a brilliant straw-gold with flecks of silver and aromas of fresh-cut green apple, quince, lemon curd, hay, honeysuckle, sea salt, and fresh brioche. There’s great depth to the minerality and terrific focus and lift on the palate—it’s airy and refined, but substantial, in the manner of the best Blanc de Blancs. The Chardonnay character rings clearly throughout and provides plenty of structure for a variety of main courses.
