andquot;Launched for the first time, the 2008 Grand Cru Les Chandeacute;tillons is 100% unfiltered Chardonnay with no dosage from the corresponding lieu-dit in Mesnil-sur-Oger in which Pierre Amillet holds two hectares. andquot;This terroir has a very poor soil with only 20 centimeters of top soil over the chalky subsoil,andquot; he says. The vines were planted in 1956. The wine shows deep and very clear flavors of yellow apples, lemon and orange aromas. Still very young, this is a pure and very mineral Champagne full of finesse, vibration and length that will benefit from some months (not to mention years) of bottle aging. A great character.andquot; -Stephanandnbsp;Reinhardt
