Fabulous Blanc de Blancs - from an exciting small grower - with a lovely combination of deep savoury nuttiness, rich creamy texture and supple fruits.
Pascal Doquet founded his estate from 8.6 hectares from the division of his parent's estate Doquet-Jeanmarie back in 2003 - his vineyards are now fully certified organic.
His Diapason cuvee comes from the famous Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs in Champagne. Chardonnay grapes are harvested at full maturity, wild yeast part oak vinified - made from a blend of 2011 (69%) and 2010 (31%) - bottled in March 2012 and aged in their cellars.
