Jose Dhondt Brut Blanc de Blancs
Bright and creamy, this well-balanced Champagne offers flavors of white peach, pear, candied grapefruit zest and pastry, joined by a briny hint of oyster shell. The firm acidity presents itself as a lively zestiness that is very appealing. Drink now through 2020.
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs flows with the essence of lemon, white flowers, almonds and pears. It is a bright, focused wine backed up with considerable plushness and generosity in its fruit. The Blanc de Blancs should drink beautifully for a number of years. This is Lot # L-0405T. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
International Wine Cellar
(L0405T): Light yellow. Intensely perfumed, complex bouquet evokes fresh pear, quince, orange zest, lemon and chalky minerals, plus a subtle note of toasty lees. Stains the palate with spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and picks up smokiness with air. Finishes long and focused, with persistent floral and spice notes.
