2008 La Vigne Aux Gamins Blanc de Blancs, Thiénot

This incredibly rare Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs from the outstanding 2008 vintage is a beautiful thing. It comes from a single parcel of 60 year old vines in Avize, whose chalky soils are famous for the superb Chardonnays that grow here. A low dosage (only 4g/l) combined with extended ageing on lees (11 years sur lattes) has imbued the wine with a complexity and depth that’s hard to match. Only 4,000 bottles were made.

This wine is now sold out. Please get in touch with your advisor or one of our team on [email protected] or 01473 313 300 for more information or guidance on an alternative.
