Les Jardins du Mesnil ~ Harvest 2019

Blanc de Blancs – Grand Cru

Terroir

The cuvée “Les Jardins du Mesnil” is crafted from a multitude of small plots located in Mesnil Sur Oger. The blend represents the variations in soil of the hillside, in its structure, height, and duration of sun exposure. The exposure is always full East. The blend is composed from a selection of our plots from the plains (such as Les Hautes Mottes, Les Coullemets) and from our very low-yielding plots in the heart of the terroir, including Les Coullemets du Midi, Les Finciarts, Les Vaucherots, Les Hauts d’Aillerand, Les Musettes, and high slopes.

Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Pts

The NV Extra-Brut Les Jardins du Mesnil is based on the 2016 vintage, complemented by reserve wines from 2015, and it was disgorged in May 2021 with four grams per liter dosage. Revealing notions of crisp green apple, citrus oil, wet stones and fresh bread, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and incisive, with a pretty mousse and a bright spine of acidity.

Jeb Dunnuck - 92 Pts

The NV Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Les Jardins Du Mesnil Extra Brut offers more depth and richness, with a higher proportion (30%) of reserve wine added to the blend to complement the 2017 vintage. It lifts from the glass with brioche, almond, and tropical aromas of green pineapple. Full-bodied and rounded, with vanillin and custardy oak spice, it displays sweet fruit through the mid-palate, with its mineral edge holding it all together

Wilfred Wong - 93 Pts

Champagne André Robert Blanc de Blancs is fresh and crisp on the palate, with an energized aftertaste. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of mineral notes, citrus peel, and green apple. Enjoy it with a lightly-seasoned Ahi tuna poke.
