Champagne, Hautes Mottes
Hautes Mottes is one of the great single sites in Le Mesnil, directly adjacent to Les Chétillons in the chalkiest part of the Grand Cru village. A gloriously complex and beguiling Champagne with notes of orange peel, hazelnut, spice, and crushed rocks. The palate is silken, with phenomenal balance and soaring minerality. A triumph.
