Some more Champagne action. And another grower Champagne. Eric Rodez has 6.1 hectares of the second largest Grand Cru of all, Ambonnay. He uses 75% old oak for this particular wine, and does lots of work with the lees.
Champagne Eric Rodez Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru NV France
From Ambonnay, this has lovely complexity with a hint of cherry complementing the citrus fruit. It’s really focused, with great acidity. Taut, fresh and structured with some richness, too. Stylish Champagne showing elegance and focus. 94/100 (£37.95 Berry Bros & Rudd; UK agent Wine Source)
