The Dhondt-Grellet “Dans un Premier Temps” non-vintage Brut is a blend of fifty percent chardonnay, thirty percent pinot noir and twenty percent pinot meunier. The wine is a blend of seventy percent base year 2014 and thirty percent reserve wines from a solera started in 1986, with the finishing dosage here five grams per liter. The wine was disgorged in October of 2017 after two and a half years aging sur latte. The nose wafts from the glass in a fine blend of apple, fresh-baked bread, lovely soil tones, a bit of smokiness and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still youthfully snappy, with a fine core, lovely soil signature, pinpoint bubbles and a long, nascently complex and nicely balanced finish. This is a lovely example that will only get better with a bit of bottle age.

The NV Extra Brut Dans Un Premier Temps is a powerful, vinous wine endowed with notable presence. Candied lemon peel, almond and floral notes meld together in a NV Champagne of uncommon depth and nuance. This release is 70% 2015 and 30% a perpetual reserve that goes back to 1986. The blend of Chardonnay from Sézanne, Pinot Noir from Avenay Val d'Or and Meunier from Cuis works beautifully here. Disgorged: June, 2018.

Unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus oil, crisp green apple, orange rind and chalky, it's full-bodied, satiny and layered, with racy acids and excellent concentration. This bottle was disgorged in March 2019 with two grams per liter dosage. - William Kelley
