Charlot's 2012 Extra Brut Blanc des Blancs L’Or des Basses Ronces is a powerful, rustic wine endowed with serious density and power. Readers should expect a Blanc de Blancs built on power and breadth above all else. There is no shortage of intensity here, that much is obvious. Disgorged: November 2016. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter.
