Jose Dhondt Champagne NV Brut Blanc de Blancs
Wine Advocate 92 - The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs flows with the essence of lemon, white flowers, almonds and pears. It is a bright, focused wine backed up with considerable plushness and generosity in its fruit. The Blanc de Blancs should drink beautifully for a number of years.
Wine Enthusiast 92 - Pure Chardonnay from the Grand Cru village of Oger, this wine is creamy and ripe. It also has a chalky mineral mouthfeel that keeps it crisp and tight. With its grapefruit and white stone fruit flavors, it's both fruity and textured. Let it age a few months and drink from 2018.
Wine Spectator 91 - Focused and finely balanced, with firm acidity and a soft and creamy mousse married to subtle flavors of baked apple, crushed almond, pastry cream and fleur de sel. Offers a pretty, ripe finish. Disgorged February 2015. Drink now through 2019.
Vinous 91 - White flowers, crushed rocks, mint and green pears jump from the glass as the Brut Blanc de Blancs shows off its vibrant, crystalline personality. All the elements fall into place in a bright, focused Blanc de Blancs long on energy and vibrancy. There is a lot to like in this chiseled Blanc de Blancs.
International Wine Cellar 91 - Pale silver with an energetic mousse. Delicate and impressively precise, offering bright lemon/lime, pear and white peach aromas underscored by zesty minerals. Seems virtually weightless, with lithe citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a long, graceful finish. Outstanding Champagne, in an understated, extremely suave style.
