J Dumangin Le Vintage 2009 Extra Brut Champagne

A great opportunity to buy a mature vintage Champagne (in a very good vintage) from a respected grower at a very fair price. The 2009, more or less half and half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Premier Cru vineyards, has honeyed depth, rich fruit and texture, nervy acidity and a clean, bone-dry finish – and it still has cellaring potential. 12%
