Specialities hitting the market
This category covers special non-vintage bottling – such as plot selections or undosed wines – born of champagne producers’ inventiveness and love of experimenting, as well as top wines that demonstrate a particularly highly developed art of blending.
Champagne J.Vignier Deux Terres Blanc de Blancs
A complex, particularly mineral nose with herbal touches, intense in the attack, dense structure, exceptionally spirited and hugely lingering, an immensely characterful wine for connoisseurs, one of the most idiosyncratic champagnes of all.
Champagne J.Vignier Ora Alba Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
Interesting mature aromas of vanilla, pastry, green Mirabelle plum and herbs, elegant in the attack, with slender yet dense development, hugely fresh, pleasantly lingering, sophisticated. Uncontrived, honest, straightforward, refined and characterful.
Champagne J.Vignier Silexus Sezannensis Blanc de Blancs
A wonderfully complex dried herb, fresh fruit and lime nose with mineral touches, crystal clear in the attack, slender structure, elegant, spirited, hugely fresh and lingering, exceptionally made, good with fried freshwater fish.
Champagne J.Vignier Aux Origines Blanc de Blancs
Reticent herb and green hazelnut nose, crystal clear in the attack, a slender and fresh structure, good length; the most accessible J.Vignier wine, a characterful aperitif.
