Champagne Brut, Le Truchat, Didier Doué (magnum)

This champagne has the chalkiest profile of all, with notes of white flowers. A very straightforward, very pure wine, a very fine Champagne d'auteur. The discreet effervescence supports the wine. Nice tension on the finish. Bettane & Desseauve: 15.5/20

A few years ago, Daniel Thibault, cellar master at Charles Heidsieck, even caused a mini-earthquake when he declared: "If there's a Montrachet in Champagne, it's in Montgueux! This is the realm of Chardonnay. Chardonnay accounts for 90% of the vineyard. The grape variety ripens ideally in these chalky soils, and there's no lack of freshness, like in Chablis.
