Blanc De Blancs d'Ay of the Maison Gaston Chiquet , vintage 2008 , particularly valuable vintage, produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Harvested by hand from vineyards that grow on soils with chalky subsoil, ideal for water drainage and heat absorption. Aging on the lees for 36 months , which give the champagne elegance and a very fine sip. Bright golden in color, it opens to the nose with a very rich bouqet with light citrine nuances. On the palate it is harmonious and tasty , from the tropiacal fruit to the most common ripe white pulp fruits, such as peach. Excellent persistence that invites immediately to another sip.
