"Directly beside one of the greatest houses in Champagne Salon in Le Mesnil sur Ogier is Guy Charlemagne. Average age of the vines is an impressive 65-85 years. They use small oak barrels with half the wine going through malolactic fermentation and half with the mololactic intact. The Mesnillesime is truly awe inspiring. Intense, elegant and reminiscent of a great Puligny Montrachet 1er cru.
This is a monumental vintage Champagne and although rare should be on every collectors list. Do not miss the 2002!"
