Champagne De Saint Gall 2008 Orpale Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru
Orpale is the Prestige Cuvée from Champagne de Saint Gall, made from Grand Cru vineyards in the Cotes de Blancs of Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Cramant, Avize, and Oger.
The wine is aged on its lees for 12 years, disgorged in May 2020 and is the drier side of Brut with 7 grams per litre.
This is a stunning Blanc de Blancs which I rate very highly: I would love to taste this alongside some of the big name houses. It is delicate and fragile with beautiful aromas of citrus oil, toasted brioche and acacia flowers.
