Dumangin Chigny La Cuvee 17 Champagne
Tyson Stelzer, Champagne Expert and Author of The Champagne Guide. 93+ Points. Tyson Stelzer ranks this champagne well in front of Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot & Billecarte-Salmon. He ranks it on par with vintage Laurent-Perrier, vintage Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, and vintage Louis Roederer, which all sell north of $200... "With new contracts in place in the outstanding 2008 vintage and thirty percent declassified premier cru fruit in the blend, this is as cracking as I have ever seen Brut 17. A pristine bouquet of vibrant lemons and strawberry hull opens out into a palate of fantastic, linear freshness with great persistence, a fine, creamy bead and refreshing minerality. An ideal aperitif style. This champagne ranks as among the best value small producer champagnes. Super elegant champagne style."
Wine Enthusiasts, 91 Points "A crisp, finely balanced wine, this is packed with fresh citrus, peach-skin and green-apple flavors. It’s a textured wine with layers of minerality on the palate. The acidity is just right—a fine streak that cuts through the fruitiness and gives a tight, taut finish."
Seen on the tables at Gordon Ramsay's restaurants and is Paul McCartney's favourite Fizz, its that good!
