John Gilman View from the cellar 92


2007 José Dhondt “Mes Vieilles Vignes” Blanc de Blancs Brut I am not sure if Monsieur Dhondt released his 2007 or his 2006 bottling of Mes Vieilles Vignes first, as I tasted this 2007 at his New York distributor’s fine tasting here in September, but his American importer sent me a sample of the 2006 from France the month previous- which seems to indicate that the 2007 was the first released here in the states. In any case, the sixty-five year-old chardonnay vines here in Oger have produced a really lovely wine in 2007 which is decidedly more accessible in style than the more steely-structured 2006 version, offering up a deep and very suave nose of pear, brioche, a touch of pink grapefruit, stony limestone soil tones and a gentle dollop of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and quite wide open, with a good core, fine focus, lovely, pinpoint bubbles and excellent length and grip on the complex and classy finish. This is another in a long line of outstanding old vine bottlings these sixty-five year-old vines from Monsieur Dhondt. 2012-2025+. 92.
