Lacourte Godbillon 1er Cru Terroirs d'Ecueil Brut Champagne

This opens with a taut and zippy nose of plum, lemon, white cherries, apricot, apple, ginger, and almond. On the palate there is a pleasant fruitiness to this, backed up by good acid and a flavor set of tree fruits, marzipan, and just there lemon zest to finish. This will drink quite well through at least 2028. This is a Champagne that, with its presence of fruit balanced by acidity, calls for a meal with some substance to it, so more main course than aperitif. Try this with simple and satisfying French cooking like chicken roulade.  D&M Tasting Notes

Ecueil is unique in its soils as they vary from sand atop deep chalk to clay atop shallow chalk at the bottom of the slopes. The Terroirs d’Ecuei MV, is made up of 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay. 65% of this comes from the excellent 2018 vintage with the remainder from the previous three years of 2015-2017. It was vinified in mostly stainless steel with 10% neutral barrels used in the winery. From there it was transferred to bottle for 24 months of lees ageing before being disgorged with a scant 5 grams per liter and a low total sulfur of 20 mg/l.  biodynamic farming practices.

Made by a couple in, at least, the second chapter of their lives. The Lacourte and Godbillon family can trace their history back at least nine generations.
