NV Saint Chamant Blanc de Blancs Brut
Champagne Saint-Chamant was established in 1930 by Pierre and Hélène Coquillette. Their son, Christian, took over the estate in 1950 and led the production for an impressive 70 years. After Christian passed away in 2020, his son Stéphane succeeded him as the third generation. Saint-Chamant specializes primarily in Blanc de Blancs with more than 11 hectares of Chardonnay vineyards in the Chouilly Grand Cru. All Saint-Chamant Champagnes are of a distinctive style and sophisticated quality, reflecting the elegance and refinement that is the estate hallmark. They display a heady, old-time richness and vinosity with extremely fine bubbles.
91 points, Wine Spectator. "Apple blossom, ripe white cherry and melon fruit flavors form an enticing, aromatic entry to this balanced Champagne, which offers a creamy bead, lightly juicy acidity and a chalky mineral overtone that lingers on the clean-cut finish."
