Pierre Mineral Mesnil "Vieillie En Fût" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #1267210

This Champagne is made entirely from selected grand cru estate fruit from the village of Mesnil. It is fermented and aged in 600-liter new-oak casks before being bottled and aged four years on the lees. It has a super rich nose of vanilla, sourdough toast, and Mesnil minerals. In the mouth it's very racy and dry, not nearly as broad as the rich nose suggests. I think this is one of the ultimate lobster Champagnes in our stock, and will repay five years of cellaring with a gorgeous drink. If you love Selosse's Origine and Tarlant's Cuvée Louis, this is one to try for sure! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

You know that when K&L staffers immediately buy a wine opened up at a staff tasting that it's a winner. Pierre Mineral's Viellie En Fut is read to deliver on all your expectations. Treated as a luxury wine, but for a price we can all take a swing at. An autumnal nose of apple and pear skin and a hint of sweet spice transform on the palate into a riotous, mouth filling celebration of bright citrus, subtle stone fruit and the slightest salty finish. Don't sleep on this.

On the nose, this begins with sweet tarte Tatin topped with ginger and caramelized pear. The texture is truly striking, lingering with just a tad of dough. Bright and clean with tons of orchard fruit and zippiness. Enjoy with a piece of triple cream cheese.

What a great bottling this is! It has a richer nose than its companion wines, which trend toward more delicacy. Very toasty with baked bread scents and whipping cream. So cool. On the palate, brighter, with green apple, lime, vanilla cream and toasted pine nut flavors. Nice, long finish. I'm buying some today!

Grand Cru Chardonnay? Check. World class producer? Check. Oak aging? Check. This is about as high a pedigree as you can find in the world of fine champagne for far less than comparable wines found elsewhere. The nose is intriguing with notes of citrus, cream, vanilla, almonds and minerals, while the Grand Cru fruit delivers the magical balance between opulence and lift. Don't miss out on this stellar deal.

This one is such a treat! Full bodied yet with classic brightness and minerality of Blanc de Blancs, it offers richness and effortless elegance at the same time. Deep and textural this Champagne is powerful; with brioche-y, yeasty notes, almond paste and toasted hazelnuts. Fresh acidity keeps all that complex flavor in check and creates delicious, balanced profile.

This Champagne is almost too good to be true. It is made entirely from estate grown Mesnil Chardonnay, 50% of which spends six months in 600 liter oak barrels, and 50% reserves from the previous year which spend a full year in oak. This creamy, balanced blanc de blancs is not oaky in flavor at all, yet has the seamless texture that only wood treatment can bring. It is a super dry, mineral Champagne with finish that won't stop. It is hard not to compare it to the Krug Clos du Mesnil, which is also barrel fermented pure Mesnil! While it doesn't have the extra age of this famous bottle, it sure is good... and 1/20th the price!
