Introducing the exquisite 9998 Domaine Vouette et Sorbee Blanc d'Argile, a mesmerizing white wine that hails from the prestigious Champagne region in France. This wine is crafted exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, sourced from a rather young vineyard that is less than ten years old. The NV Brut Nature Blanc d'Argile, also known as the "R14," is a true marvel that showcases the exceptional quality of the 2014 harvest.

In the glass, this wine reveals an intense citrus hue, glistening with white-golden reflections that captivate the eye. The nose is both intense and refined, exuding a floral bouquet that is reminiscent of blossoming broom. Surprisingly, this Blanc de Blancs has been oak-fermented, yet its aromatics do not betray this process.

On the palate, the 9998 Blanc d'Argile strikes a perfect balance between roundness and dryness. It showcases a firm and mineral character that leads to a long, tensioned, and well-structured finish. The saline notes on the finish add a delightful touch, leaving a lasting impression that lingers on the palate.

This remarkable wine is a harmonious blend of ripe, luscious fruit, elegance, finesse, and distinct iodine flavors. It evokes a sense of place, reminiscent of the finest Chablis wines. The 9998 Blanc d'Argile is a true embodiment of craftsmanship and terroir, showcasing the skill and dedication of Domaine Vouette et Sorbee.

If you're seeking the perfect pairing, this wine begs for oysters, as its briny notes would complement the delicate flavors of these delectable shellfish. Disgorged in March 2017 and tasted in July 2018, this wine is ready to be savored now or can be cellared to further develop its complexity and depth.

In conclusion, the 9998 Domaine Vouette et Sorbee Blanc d'Argile is a true gem from the Champagne region. With its intense aromatics, balanced palate, and lingering finish, it is a wine that will leave wine enthusiasts in awe of its magnificence.
