Doquet's NV Extra Brut Premier Crus Blanc de Blancs is pretty, soft and enveloping. Dried pears, spices, crushed flowers and almonds wrap around the palate in this expressive, layered Champagne. This is one of the more open Extra Brut Champagnes readers will come across, likely because of the high presence of 2005 juice and full malolactic fermentation. Technical details aside, the wine is flat out delicious. Dosage is 3.5 grams per liter.
91 points. Galloni.
Fresh citrus highlights the nose and meanders into a creamy, doughy, mineral-filled palate. With air, toast and apple flavors become more obvious. A very enjoyable wine that is not only easy to drink, but contains a wonderful complexity that lifts it above the typical, non-vintage Blanc de blancs pack. Recommended, but what wine from Pascal Doquet isn't?
