J. L. Vergnon : Eloquence Blanc de Blancs Grand cru Extra Brut

A Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut champagne that enhances its terroir

The producer

A family-owned estate for five generations, J.L. Vergnon advocates a delicious alchemy between tradition, passion for the terroir and the authentic expression of a flagship grape variety of Champagne, Chardonnay.

The vineyard

The vineyards of the J.L. Vergnon Champagne House are composed of Grands Crus from the Côte des Blancs and Premiers Crus from the villages of Vertus and Villeneuve. The house watches over a vineyard of around twenty plots, managed in a sustainable manner and bearing the HVE 3 label.

The wine

J.L.Vergnon's Éloquence Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut is made from parcels located in the villages of Mesnil sur Oger, Oger and Avize.

Vinification and ageing

This champagne is made from 20% reserve wine, aged for 3 months in oak barrels, and 80% of the year's wine vinified in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged in the estate's cellars for 3 years before disgorging. The dosage for this cuvée is 3 g/litre.

The blend

Éloquence Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut is a 100% Chardonnay.

Éloquence Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut by J. L Vergnon: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful golden colour with green highlights. The effervescence is very fine.

Nose

Aromatic, the first nose blends grapefruit, almond, biscuit and pear fragrances. When aerated, the bouquet deepens its complexity through mineral, peppery and even spicy notes.

Palate

Lively and tense, the palate is marked by its precision and aromatic purity. Persistent, the finish seduces with its chalky, mineral and even saline notes, characteristic of this singular terroir.

Service

For an optimal tasting, serve between 9 and 10°C.

Cellaring

J.L.Vergnon's Éloquence Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut can be kept in the cellar for around 10 years in order to develop its full aromatic complexity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Disgorged in November 2017, the latest rendition of Vergnon's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Eloquence offers up notes of hazelnut, blanched almonds, peach, crisp yellow apple and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, with a frothy but fine mousse, ripe acids and a delicate core of fruit, concluding with a bright and chalky finish.
