A total rock star wine, the NV Grand Cru Blanc de Noirs Les Crayeres VV emerges from the old-vine Crayeres lieu-dit in Ambonnay. Rich, deep and explosive in the glass, the Crayeres boasts superb intensity and richness, with all of the weight of these 70+ year-old vines and 60 months of sur-lie aging in the glass. Wild flowers, honey, red berries, smoke, licorice, game and chalk are pushed forward in a warm, resonant Champagne that captures the essence of Ambonnay. Slightly oxidative notes from the 64 months the wine spent on its lees add character, while a touch of oak is barely noticeable and only in the wine's overall feel. This is just about as good as it gets. The current release is 60% 2008 and 40% 2007, bottled with dosage of 3 grams/liter. Disgorged: November 2014.
