"The 2011 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs OG Grand Cru is an impressive wine for a number of reasons, most importantly the sheer depth Vergnon was able to coax out of his vines in 2011. A Champagne of real texture and weight, the 2011 speaks with notable gravitas. Lemon confit, white flowers, chalk, white pepper and mint all add shades of nuance, but more than anything else, the 2011 stands out for its volume and breadth. The blend is 80% Mesnil and 10% each Oger and Avize, all from old vines that clearly had a lot to give in 2011. "
