Grape variety: Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay; primarily from Vertus, along with parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru, Oger Grand Cru, Avize Grand Cru, and Cramant Grand Cru. 45+-year-old vines, 15% malolactic conversion, 60 months sur latte.
"The forthcoming release of Doyard's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Vendémiaire (2015 base), and it's a touch richer and more gourmand than its 2014-base counterpart. Mingling aromas of peach, white flowers, green apple, nutmeg and toasted almonds, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a vinous profile, lively acids and fine length on the finish."
