Prerelease #Champagne Purs Cramants from Nathalie Vignier

23 October 2013, by Sebastian Nickel

It’s always a little thrilling to discover a new wine, a new cuvée. Nathalie Vignier presented her Champagne Pur Cramant in a very uncomplicated manner: comfortably sitting in her kitchen. A prerelease, disgorged just minutes before, while the remaining bottles will continue their ageing for another couple of weeks. A beautiful champagne, delicately chiseled out of chalk and Chardonnay, with a powerful and enthusiastic nose: white peach, some hazelnuts, zesty lemon and the smell of blossoms that made me think of lily of the valley and mayflowers. 

Straight and mineral on the palate, with powerful and impressive acidity. The bubbles are lively but tender, melting down slowly into the wine, giving a creamy mouthfeel on the final. There is something tactile in this wine, something your tongue and cheeks can feel, a chalky impression that makes you think of its terroir, giving length and persistence. A beautiful wine for tasting and for food, that one would spontaneously associate to Sushi orfish carpaccio.
