Champagne Sadi Malot Brut Blanc de Blancs 'Terre d' Origine'
Sparkling wine. Villers-Marmery, Champagne, France. Organic. 100% Chardonnay. "The Sadi Malot “Terre d’Origine” Blanc de Blancs non-vintage Brut includes forty-five percent reserve wines in the blend, made from a solera that was started in 1985. The new release is from the base year of 2015, was aged about three and a half years sur latte and disgorged in November of 2019, with a finishing dosage of eight grams per liter. The wine is really lovely on the nose, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, apple, almond, chalky soil tones, bread dough and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core, excellent backend mineral drive, pinpoint bubbles and a fine girdle of acidity to carry the wine nicely in the cellar. This is very refined Blanc de Blancs. 2020-2035+." — 91+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
