About

94

"Disgorged in September 2017 with two grams per liter dosage after 54 months on the lees, the 2012 Extra-Brut Premier Cru Les Chaillots from Lacourte Godbillon is entirely sélection massale Pinot Noir, planted in 1966 on the south-facing slopes of Ecueil. Offering up aromas of mirabelle plum, yellow apple, blanched almonds and dried white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, crisp and chalky, with fine-boned structuring extract, ripe but racy acids and a long, saline finish. It's quite typical of the elegant, mineral Pinot Noir-based Champagnes of this part of the Montagne de Reims. 1337 bottles were produced."

Product Description:

"A lovely balance of yellow plum fruit and an incisive, well-judged structure from the barrel fermentation. Open and long texture. Lily and smoke and the whiff of baking, with a fresh lemon-oil note on the end." -Importer
