Blanc de Blanc

French for ‘white of whites’, Blanc de Blanc indicates a champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. Celebrated examples come from the Côte des Blancs, a mostly eastern-facing slope that owes its name to the colour of the grape that is planted: 95% Chardonnay. Notable villages include Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly and Vertus.

A great starting place is Pierre Péters Blanc de Blanc Cuvée de Réserve Grand Cru NV, a blend of multiple Grand Cru sites and vintages from the Côte des Blancs.

Another favourite and fast assuming the role of a modern classic, the Agrapart Terroirs Blanc de Blancs NV is a stunning example of Blanc de Blanc style. To really get to the heart of this style, compare it with the same wine, but with +3 years in bottle. Drink side by sdie to see how bottle age affects the character of quality champagne.
