Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"Dhondt-Grellet's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Terres Fines 1er Cru is powerful, intense and richly flavored, with plenty of old-vine Chardonnay character. There is a real vinosity in the glass that is hugely appealing. Over time, the wine fills out its broad frame nicely. Although the Les Terres Fines is at times a bit burly, it is certainly not lacking in personality. This is a decidedly masculine expression of Cuis Chardonnay. Lemon confit, wild flowers, almonds and brioche infuse the deeply satisfying finish. The low dosage style works nicely here. The Terres Fines is 70% 2013 and 30% reserve wines from a perpetual reserve that goes back to 1986."

Product Description:

"Coming from nine different plots all from the limestone rich soils of Cuis with an average age of 45 years, Les Terres Fines is an expression of Chardonnay that could only come from Cuis. The base vintage makes up 70% of the blend with the remainder a perpetual reserve going back to 1986. Dosage is 0g/L." - Importer
