Médaille d’Or Paris (Gold Medal) – Concours Général Agricole
This prestige Cuvee is a blend of the 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2015 vintages. It’s a selection of the finest vintages and is the top wine that Le Mesnil produces. This is a Champagne that shows incredible power and sophistication. Fans of Le Mesnil know how good these wines are, and this is simply brilliant.
“Offering up an inviting bouquet of warm biscuits, buttery pastry, dried fruits, lemon oil and blanched almonds, it’s medium to full-bodied, vinous and incisive, with fine concentration and an elegant pearly mousse…this is an impressively seamless, sophisticated offering that certainly takes this label’s offerings to another level.”
Cuvée Heritage is the symbol of a few men’s bravery and determination in sharing their knowledge while developing the history of the beautiful Le Mesnil house over decades. This new cuvée Heritage reflects this more than 80 years old saga.
Seven vintage wines ( 2007.2008.2009.2010.2012.2014.2015) have been selected with care so that their respective qualities can magnify this outstanding bottle.
Champagne of nice golden colour showing green hints and fine and lingering bubbles. Aromas reveal its terroir and grape variety. On the palate, it is complex and balanced with notes of spices, citrus and delicate bitter tastes. Its extra-brut dosage allows its character to be fully expressed.
Pairs perfectly with foie gras, caviar, scallops, fish in sauce or gastronomic white meats.
Limited and numbered editions: only 3246 bottles were produced.
