This is a special Grand Cru, 100% Chardonnay bottling from the grower house of Domaine Michel Turgy, crafted solely for the California market.
Some of the finest terroir in Champagne inarguably lies in the picturesque Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger. Millions of years ago this area was a warm, shallow tropical sea; those eons of geology have left behind layers of dense chalk and limestone soils, lending the wines an incomparable laser-etched acidity and precise definition.
This cuvée exudes classic blanc de blancs traits throughout: from its vibrant lemon-gold reflections, to the fresh-cut white flowers and green apple on the nose, to the vivid chalk and bracing lemon-and-mineral, honeyed finish. This is one of those rare wines that paradoxically straddles a bracing mineral knifes-edge and richer elements of honey, cashew, and ripe apple.
