Michel Gonet, Grand Cru Mesnil Sur Oger, Champagne, France, 2012Regular price £45.50
Mature, vintage Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards at this price? Made like outstanding white Burgundy, less like Champagne - very much the style of grower Champagne.
Rich, round, and bone dry, with a bright acidity and distinct minerality. No need to wait for a celebration to pop this bubbly - it betters much more expensive Grand Marques, especially at this price. That's a celebration in itself!
