Champagne Encry, Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru

£44.95

This young boutique champagne producer is blessed with some of the most desirable vineyard land in the world, in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, a grand cru of the Côte des Blancs famous for its exquisite Chardonnay and favoured by the likes of Krug and Salon. So far so classic – but there is an unusual side to the story. Encry is, uniquely, run by Italians. Environmental engineer Enrico Baldin was hired to do some vineyard work by a Champagne grower, fell in love with the region, and ended up starting his own label with his wife Nadia. With some seemingly monumental regulatory hurdles now behind them, the Italian couple are producing a quintessentially Côte des Blancs style of champagne: refined, nervy, focused, yet will real depth and vinosity.

TASTING NOTES

Stunning Blanc de Blancs of real richness and depth that nonetheless retains the mineral precision of its illustrious origin. Peachy succulence is balanced by great delicacy of texture.

Champagne Encry has a little under three hectares of vines in Le Mesnil Sur-Oger, a grand cru village with particularly dense chalky soil producing correspondingly pure, vibrant wines.
