This is the Cremant we've been looking for!

Champagne look a like - this is superb

This the Cremant we've been looking for! I've tasted so many in the last few years that are just a bit concocted, with sugar masking the sins of under ripe and low quality grapes. This on the other hand is similar to Champagne Blanc de Blancs from the same kind of chalk soils you'd find in the Cotes des Blancs, but from Chablis, just to the North.

 It's refreshing and elegant, with fine bubbles, concentrated, yet slim, and a bit tauter than smart Champagne, as you'd expect from the cool North of Chablis, with notes of white flowers, and a touch of coolness and salinity and minerality that slakes the thirst. It develops in the glass, taking on some weight.  I came back to it the next day and it had fleshed out and taken on a bit of brioche aroma and flavours, and it was still remarkably pure. 

It's also a vintage Cremant, so it cannot fall back on other years or aged reserve wines to prop it up. It has to stand on it's own two feet. And the more I think about it, the more special it is.
