100% from the Champs d'Alouettes vineyard in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, a single Grand Cru 100% chardonnay site of .4ha. It's a "bull's eye" plot that gives the classic powerful, minerally but also the deep and profound flavours that make Le Mesnil so famous. Xavier ferments and ages the wine is older barrels for 6 months, blocks the malo, and then this rare wine sleeps in the bottle for 13 years! It is usually blended for Cuvée Théophile and is only ever vinified separately in the very best vintages - under 100 dozen are usually made. Gonet-Medeville and Krug are the only two houses to own vineyards in this site! It's low in dosage (around 2.5g/L, which is perfect because of the aged brioche, honey, biscuity and lemon curd characters with intense minerality. This is a searingly powerful and profound wine!
