José Dhondt, Brut Blanc de Blancs Oger Non Vintage

Jose Dhondt BdB #1

100% Chardonnay from Oger in the Côte des Blancs.  Base vintage 2010.  Dosage: 8 g/l.  Disgorged February 2013. Current release.

Pale. First-rate detail here: cool jasmine, wet forest, shoot smoke and the insistent chalk of Oger.  The stone fruit is layered and alluring texturally.  Sumptuous finish, sea-salted with a honeyed savor.  Stylish Oger for both his generosity and his poise.  Now – 2018+.
