Jean Vesselle Blanc de Blancs de Chouilly ‘B2C’ 2014


For nearly 300 years, the Vesselle family has been tilling the chalky soils of Bouzy and cultivating some of the village’s best-placed Pinot Noir vines. Wines from this peerless family estate combine a classic Champagne elegance with the signature power and uncompromising flavor of wines from Bouzy. This ‘B2C’ continues the estate’s look at the energy and power of pure Chardonnay with a selection of fruit from the grand cru village of Chouilly, where Delphine Vesselle’s husband David was born and raised and where the family has vineyards. Here the lacy delicacy of the Côte de Blancs meets Bouzy savoir-faire, for a delicious result.
