The Gaston Chiquet Champagne Blanc de Blancs d'Ay is classic with its sophisticated balance of tartness and chalkiness. This wine deeply intertwines aromas and flavors of dried apple skin and yeasty autolysis. Serve it with pan-fried English sole.

Disgorged in January 2019, the latest release of Gaston Chiquet's NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs d'Aÿ is showing beautifully, opening in the glass with scents of crisp yellow orchard fruit, white flowers, blanched almonds and fresh peach. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and charming, with a succulent core of fruit, a delicate pinpoint mousse and a nicely defined finish. Elegant and expressive, this is a beautifully balanced Blanc de Blancs that would make for a perfect aperitif.
Vibrant yellow-green hue, fine mousse. Delicate and fruity nose: citrus, pineapple, grapefruit with a hint of lemon. Lively palate with the finesse of Chardonnay: citrus, white flowers, mandarin, fresh sage, and a long finish on freshness. Aperitif Champagne par excellence.
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
