Wine Advocate-Parker : The NV Brut Grand Cru Femme de Champagne (L6305NM, disgorged in October 2016, tasted in November 2017) is a blend of four grand cru villages: Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger (Chardonnay: 80%) and Ambonnay (Pinot Noir: 20%). Fermented at 14% in oak, the wine opens with a clear, fresh and subtle bouquet of white fruits with citrus flavors that indicate the freshness and finesse of Chardonnay. It is a lean and very elegant, juicy but also creamy and well-structured blend with a long and aromatic finish that reveals the junior Pinot Noir part. There is nice salinity and green tea flavors (mint) in the aftertaste. This is still a very fresh and youthful example. Dosage: five grams per liter.
