The Champagne Virginie T Blanc de Blancs has a pale golden yellow with very fine and delicate effervescence. It has a refined floral nose that reveals hints of white flowers and lemon. The palate has great volume and a full body that is well-structured and has great balance with its acidity. The mineral notes express its long maturity and finishes with a refreshing touch. This is a great champagne for a fancy aperitif.
This Blanc de Blancs is a blend of several villages, but two grands crus express themselves particularly in this cuvée.
In Cramant, the style of the chardonnay is full-bodied and lively. A brioche expression, which over time magnifies the blend. It is a vintage that they have been working on for several generations, especially when Virginie Taittinger was making the Comtes de Champagne from the Taittinger house. Other houses like Krug are also established there.
In Mailly-Champagne, the style of the chardonnay brings sharpness and ageing to the blend. Grand cru from the northern flank of the Montagne de Reims, where pinot noir thrives, chardonnays are rare and express the roasted hazelnut, while bringing finesse, complexity and length.
The Champagne Virginie T Blanc de Blancs is made from a blend of the best Chardonnays and 6 years of ageing in the cellar. This is the product of the mother and son duo (Virginie and Ferdinand Pougatch) with limited production of this cuvee (only 5000 bottles), and the astonishing pale golden colour makes it very rare on the market.
Renowned for their delicacy and elegance, Chardonnays cover only 27% of the Champagne vineyard, mainly in the Côte des Blancs, south of Epernay, making it a rare commodity. This elegant bottle is a great start to any celebration and goes well with aperitifs.
