Vertus, Champagne, France
No blending for this single-cru Champagne: exclusively chardonnay, from a single terroir and a single vintage. An attractive, honeyed nose, with notes of praline and brioche. A savoury palate of herbs, anise and pears all flesh out of this complex, beautifully layered wine. It’s an incredibly rich expression of terroir. This wine is non-dosé (no sugar added), in order to respect its purity from beginning to end.
