Valentin Leflaive Le Mesnil Sur Oger 16-50 Champagne Grand Cru


Availability: In stock

Champagne plot of wines harvested exclusively in Mesnil Sur Oger.

- +

It is a parcel-based Champagne of wines harvested exclusively in Mesnil Sur Oger classified Grand Cru (Coeur de Terroir parcel called Champ d'Alouette, Volibart, Jeamprunt...). The vines are on average 20 years old.

These sloping plots are oriented south, south-east on the Côte des Blancs, renowned for the quality of its Chardonnay grape variety and the quality of its chalky soil, thus contributing to the birth of very characteristic and exceptional champagnes.

It is a Blanc de Blancs champagne, because the plots are planted exclusively with Chardonnay grapes. After the harvest, which is entirely manual, and bottling, they are taken down into a deep cellar, away from light, at an almost constant temperature, to age on slats for 3 years.

The gold color reveals some emerald green reflections.

Both on the nose and on the palate, tangy citrus notes such as lime and tangerine, pink grapefruit from Florida or clementine from Corsica, punctuated by touches of white flowers such as spring hawthorn, gunflint or linden flower.

The very pleasant finish is long with saline and sweet notes.

Food/wine pairings: as an aperitif served at 8 to 10°C, but not less so as not to fade the aromas and flavors of this champagne.

Will go very well with oysters from Marennes Oléron, Belon from the Emerald Coast in Brittany. Perfect with canapes of caviar from Aquitaine or tapenade with black olives and wild herbs from Provence, langoustines from Croisic, sea urchins or sea bream grilled a la plancha.

Bottles to be kept in the cellar away from light and noise with a humidity level of around 70%.

We suggest successive tastings in order to measure its olfactory and gustatory evolution until its qualitative asymptote.
