Bright and fluid on the eye with an intense pale green and gold colour, marked by dancing flashes of yellow-green topaz deep in the glass. A lively stream of tiny bubbles provides a persistent crown at the top of the glass. The appearance promises a fresh and nuanced wine.

The first impression on the nose is one of patisserie and flowers, with hints of creamy butter, meringue, warm brioche, caramel and a slightly toasty note against a background of mimosa; verbena, fresh roses, acacia, poppies, cloves and lime. Allowing the wine to breathe for a while brings out more mineral and fruity notes in which soft chalk, iodine, ripe hazelnuts, pear, lemon, white peaches, fresh grapes and hawthorn blossom all mingle harmoniously together. It is compounded by hints of peppermint, liquorice and star anise that highlight the freshness and profile. Notes of exotic fruits such as pineapple and passion fruit plus a suggestion of soft spices promise another range of aromas to come.

The palate is immediately fresh and supple with a soft, creamy effervescence. Then the champagne develops a crunchy and pulpy fruit texture underlined by a finely stretched lemon acidity. The mid-palate is orchestrated by a chalky minerality which brings boldness, salinity and length on the tongue. The skilful use of oak lends polish to the lively fruity character of the wine whilst still maintaining the structure and the lemon and salty vibrancy which, in turn, enhances its persistent plumpness; a vintage that is a true reflection of springtime complemented by the perfect choice of dosage.

Le Grand Blanc Vintage 2013 is fresh, full-bodied and fruitiness make it easy to enjoy, giving ample opportunity for food pairing with more full-flavoured dishes.
