A Bottle Of Bubbly - Retasting Lenoble´s 2008 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

I was very impressed by this 2008 earlier this year. But at this sort of tastings, nice as they are, you don´t have the time to follow the wine for more than 15-20 minutes. At home, I can follow the same wine for days, really to getting to grips with it.
Lets pop and pour!

2008 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, AR Lenoble
A very pure, young, cheeky nose with lovely notes of lemon cream, white peaches, buttercup flowers and milk chocolate. Refined and with lots of nerve. This is really good. Lots of potential. Hints of fresh ginger after some time in the glass. Stunning.
The taste is young, concentrated and intense with notes of lemon cream, fudge, butter biscuits and sweet minerals. A racy acidity that cleans the palate. Long and pure. This is a very fine bottle of young Champagne.
Opened yesterday and today the nose is the same but it is a tad softer on the palate. Very creamy. Great wine. Glad I have a bunch.
95p   (tasted 2014/12)
