Champagne Benoît Lahaye Millesime

100,80 €

Vintage Champagnes are like time capsules that tell the story of a specific year if you are willing to take notice. Benoit Lahaye produces his millesime champagne only in specific years that he considers to be worthwhile and always from two specific vineyards located in the heart of his property in Bouzy. Monts de Tauxieres which is planted with Pinot Noir in 1966 and Haut de Argentieres planted with Chardonnay in 1960. Seductive, with depth of fruit and floral on the nose, it transforms to a vigorous beast of tremendous energy and persistence on the palate. A terroir-driven, vintage champagne which won’t stop to raise its complexity for many years to come in the cellar.

More info

Fermentation with indigenous yeasts exclusively in old oak barrels of Bordeaux and Burgundy and stay in contact with the wine lees for 5 years before the sediment is removed. Millesime 2008 is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from Bouzy, with rich aromas of toast and brioche, quince and ripe red fruits. Creamy and exuberant in the mouth, with acidity that gives it great intensity and lively bubbles, which lead to a long biscuit aftertaste. 2008 was a great year with very structured wines. For this reason, Millesime of 2008 made a second fermentation in a bottle closed with a cork, which gave even more volume and richness to the wine.

    Expressive yet quiet on the nose. Excellent aromatic clarity, in what is definitely a clear expression of the wonderful floral aromas of Moscato. The freshness of the notes of green tea leaves, adds finesse to the sweetness of the fruit that reminisces of past summers. Imagine having in front of you a rich fruit-salad of peaches, apricots, grapes and...

A wonderful nose of wild cherry, plum which mingle with sweet and pungent spices coming from the wonderful job done with the oak. Full-bodied without being tiring or mellow, and how could...
