The Blanc de Blanc 2007 from Alfred Gratien is 100% Chardonnay, singularly representing the nobility and the typical characteristics of the Alfred Gratien Champagnes. In the glass this champagne presents a clear golden robe with a delicate and persistent fizz. The nose is lively and structured, with notes of toasty vanilla yielding to aromas of sparkling citrus. The palate is also lively and fresh, recalling the initial citrus fragrances. The body is supported by notes of brioche and buttered toast. The Cuvée Blanc de Blanc 2007 from Champagne Alfred Gratien is a lovely wine that will delight Champagne lovers with its complexity and elegance.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2007 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut (L 15300) offers a clear, deep, ripe and refreshing nose with pain aux raisin flavors. Pure and mineral on the palate, this is a lovely, complex and powerful, yet pure and refreshing Chardonnay from five Grands Cru villages in the Côte des Blancs. It has a great finish. This Champagne is long, though still very young, but very promising and firmly structured.
