A vintage Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) champagne of great intensity: luscious ripe fruit and silky complexity with gastronomic potential.
Out of stock
Named after the eponymous lieu dit (single parcel of vines) in the Premier Cru village of Cuis in the Côte des Blancs, Les Nogers 2014 is a vintage Blanc de Blancs with fruit heralding from vines that are over 50 years old.
Adjacent to the Grand Cru village of Cramant, Les Nogers lies on the free-standing Butte de Saran hill—an outcropping of rock detached from the long and chalk-covered, east-facing slopes of the Côte des Blancs, and widely considered to be the best terroir of Cramant—offering a fascinating insight into the unique terrain of sandy-clay and chalk.
The current release is based on the 2014 vintage. Disgorged in December 2019, the cuvée is finished with a low dosage of 2.5 g/L.
Les Nogers 2014 pours like liquid gold; beads shimmering, deeply radiating. The palate then unveils like layers of silk—ripe citrus, apple, stone fruit and toasted brioche at first; gently expanding into a pillow of cream and vanilla studded with saline and minerals; and finishing with extraordinary length textured with dried cranberry, cacao and honey—utterly mesmerising and delicious.
