Champagne Lombard Brut Nature Grand Cru Millésime 2008
NOTE FROM THE CELLAR MASTER
2008 was a great vintage, especially for the Chardonnays. They are in a large majority in the blend to maintain the typical freshness of this vintage: the grapes were showing high acidity and excellent phenolic maturity. The Pinots Noir from Ambonnay bring the body, necessary so that the wine represents the best his vintage.
2008 is a very fresh vintage, which gives the wine a sublime sharpness. The sun coming back before and during the harvest resulted in perfectly ripe grapes, on top of their very healthy state. These characteristics put 2008 alongside the great vintages of 1988, 1989, 1990: vintages perfectly crafted for the bottle ageing.
