2005 Philippe Gonet "Cuvée Belemnita" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #1433360 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2005 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Belemnita opens a bit lactic on the nose in the first moment but then delivers super ripe honey dew melon, sweet cherry, white peach and raspberry aromas on the nose. This is a wide, expansive, highly complex and elegant Chardonnay with grip and tension and a very long, intense finish. It is quite fruity for a Chardonnay but highly delicate, fresh and elegant, with a long, complex, well-structured, yeasty and aromatic finish. A great wine. (SR)  (11/2017)

K&L Notes

We only recieved 24 bottles of this ultra rare Champagne. The name is Latin for the extinct, fossilized squids that are prevalent in the chalk soil of the village of Mesnil- chalk that is more than 120 feet deep! This Champagne is the essence of minerality with flavors and aromas of pure chalk, white flowers and fresh baked bread. This wine is a real lesson in purity and focus, and the opposite of the biscuity, richer style... It is also among the best we have at any price!!! If you are looking for something very special, look no further. This is double the wine of the famous names at the same price and even above!
