Champagne Castelnau Blanc de Blancs Millésimé

58.50

With an exceptional ageing period on the lees of more than 10 years in our cellars, Castelnau Blanc de Blancs Vintage is created for gastronomy : the power of the aromas and a hint of iodine from the soil make a perfect marriage.

Comments of the Chef de Cave :
This characterful « assemblage » has been resting quietly in our cellars, acquiring wisdom and maturity.
Today it will surprise the taster with its haunting perfume and a rare freshness on the palate.

The rich creamy notes lend a nobility and a vivacity to the whole wine.

For a large part the Chardonnay comes from the Montagne de Reims and takes time, quietly, to develop and open up. Blended with Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs, the whole is more than the sum of the parts, and we see a superlative blend, rich in aromatic complexity yet keeping a youthful freshness.

A 100 years ago a group of enterprising wine growers in Epernay set about launching a new champagne brand in honour of a French First World  War general whose name was General Curières de Castelnau.

Today, as if by magic, the know-how and inventiveness they showed form a link between the traditions of that period and the present day. Champagne Castelnau is the ultimate expression of a champagne from a vineyard covering 900 hectares: all the growers who provide grapes bring as well a deep knowledge of the terroir and a passion for cultivating the vine.
