Guiborat Champagne "Cuvée Millésime" Blanc de Blancs '10

The Côte des Blancs is well known for producing some of the finest Chardonnay in all of Champagne. So much so that many of the top producers from the area command big prices for their Champagne. Yet there are a handful of top small grower houses that are still just beginning to be discovered.

Richard Fouquet and his winery, Champagne Guiborat is an emerging star. The domaine was created in 1885, and today they own 8 hectares in the villages of Cramant, Chouilly, and Mardeuil. Most of their fruit they still sell, but keep their best parcels for their small range of Champagne.

This is one of the top wines at Guiborat. A vintage Champagne produced entirely from Chardonnay, this is sourced from the single vineyard "Le Mont Aigu" in the village of Chouilly. Only the juice of the first press is used. After fermentation the base wines have a lengthy elevage on their lees (at least 7 months) until assemblage and bottling the following Spring. In Richard’s quest for an absolute minimum of intervention and transparency, malo is blocked on the base wines. The goal of the Millesime is to capture the quintessence of the terroir of Chouilly. Aged for 79 on the lees months in the chalk cellars beneath the winery before disgorgement. Dosage of 4.5 g/l. Aged an additional 9-12 months after disgorgement before release.

Beautiful citrus and mineral notes on the nose and palate, with great texture and richness in the mid palate. This is a superb Champagne that any fan of sparkling wine will enjoy.
