"The 2015 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru is fabulous and also one of the clear highlights in this stunning range of Champagnes from Aurelien Laherte. Rich, dense and explosive, with tremendous textural resonance, Les Grandes Crayères hits all the right notes. In the glass, the 2015 is intensely mineral and yet it also possesses stunning depth. Bright citrus and floral notes add striking layers of nuance. Readers will find a remarkably pure, crystalline Blanc de Blancs that captures a dazzling expression of Chardonnay. Don’t miss it. Dosage: 4 gr/L. Disgorged: February, 2019."
