    100% Chardonnay from the Corne Bautray lieu-dit in Dizy. The parcel lies at the top of a steep slope facing south-west; clay and alluvial silt filled with millstone grit gravel on Campanian chalk. 9,000 vines planted to Chardonnay over one hectare in 1960. Chablis pruning. Grapes picked on 28th September 2008 with 8.3g/L acidity. Bottled on 20th May 2009. Disgorged in April 2018. No dosage. 2008 was a year characteristic of our northern clime: spring was cool and rainy, summer dry and windy, as was September. Proof that Champagne can produce a great vintage despite a cool growing season!

    This is a phenomenal Champagne of such purity. It delivers immense power with such refinement. There’s a very precise feel with a super fine, sliced-brioche nose and white-peach, fine-lemon and chalky-mineral notes. So fresh. There’s such intensity, focus and delicacy to the palate. So focused and so detailed with seamless, fluid, ripe-chardonnay flavor and layers of savory baked biscuits, building on the finish. Wonderfully complete structure and texture. The power here is considerable and the acidity drive is simply wild. Wow! Drink or hold.

    The 2008 Extra Brut Premier Cru Dizy - Corne Bautray is showing brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with a youthful bouquet of citrus oil, clear honey, preserved rhubarb and subtle hints of fresh pastry. On the palate, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with an incisive spine of acidity, considerable concentration and a long, reverberating finish. This is an unusually tensile, racy rendition of this cuvée, and Jean-Hervé Chiquet observes that, in the 2008 vintage, this typically rich wine has embraced its Chardonnay origins more wholeheartedly than usual. It's a terrific wine that will delight Champagne purists. All 5,488 bottles and 304 magnums were disgorged without dosage in April 2018. As readers may know, the Corne Bautray is a southwest-facing parcel planted in 1960 that's characterized by gravel and marl soils over a base of Campanian chalk.

    The 2008 Extra-Brut Corne Bautray, 100% Chardonnay, is a wine of real class and sophistication. Lemon confit, white pepper, chalk and floral notes all open up in the glass, but more than anything else, the Corne Bautray is a wine of total harmony. The finesse of the mousse alone is truly remarkable. Beautifully textured and vinous, with terrific freshness, the 2008 is a regal, impeccably balanced Champagne with tons of pure personality. No dosage. Disgorged: April, 2018.
