NV Michel Turgy, Champagne a Mesnil sur Oger Blanc de Blancs Brut

Champagne at its most unpretentious. This 100% chardonnay from the sacred southern Champagne site of Mesnil sur Oger, shows the hallmark toasted walnut and sourdough aromas of delicious blanc de blancs--lemony in taste with hints of creamery butter and tart minerality. It has surprising power in the finish, perhaps from a lower dosage that leaves the wine dry, crisp, and very clean.

btw, while the estate is in flux they can't vintage so it's essentially vintage champers for NV numbers. Plus, it's sex on a stick.
