See Decanter's expert rating, tasting notes and drinking window for David Léclapart, L’Artiste Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru, Montagne de Reims, 2007.
This comes from 30- to 50-year-old Chardonnay vines in the village of Trépail, and it is always the product of a single harvest (a code on the back label indicates the year). It is partially fermented in barrel, accentuating its complex depth and its lively, chalk-driven finesse.
Price: £52 Clos & Cru
