The forthcoming release of the NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Les Terres Fines (2016) is based on the 2016 vintage, disgorged in December 2018 with two grams per liter dosage. Opening up to reveal scents of crisp green apples, white flowers, walnuts and a subtle touch of fino sherry, it's full-bodied, layered and incisive, with a deep, concentrated and muscular profile despite its racy acids and precise, undeniably mineral finish. - William Kelley

The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Terres Fines 1er Cru is tense and vibrant, with plenty of citrus peel, mineral, apricot pit and floral notes. The steelier side of Chardonnay from Cuis comes through loud and clear, and yet there is real power here. This release is 70% 2015 and 30% a perpetual reserve that goes back to 1986. Disgorged: March, 2018. -- Antonio Galloni

The current release of les Terroirs Fines from Dhondt-Grellet hails from the base year of 2014 and includes thirty percent reserve wines from their solera, started all the way back in 1986. It was finished with a dosage of two grams per liter and disgorged in December of 2016. The bouquet is now starting to show some secondary layers in its complex mix of pear, delicious apple, brioche, lovely, chalky soil tones, a whisper of oak and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, bright, seamless acids and excellent length and grip on the complex and bone dry finish. The combination of the extended bottle age and the thirty percent reserve wines from the solera allows for the very low dosage to work beautifully, and this wine is drinking beautifully today and is really at its best served at the table throughout the meal. Fine juice.
