Lilbert Grand Cru Blanc De Blanc
The small domaine of Lilbert-Fils is located in the heart of the noble Côte des Blancs. Established in 1746, the winery is today managed by Bertrand Lilbert, who tends 3.5 ha of vineyards in 3 prestigious Grand Cru villages - Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry. Each wine is painstakingly made by hand. Bottles are manually riddled and disgorged ‘a la volée’. The classic style of the domaine focuses on taut acidity, elegant fruit, and long aging potential. At only 30,000 bottles, production is very small.
“Lilbert makes classic Côte des Blancs champagnes of great purity, finesse and expression. The only problem with these wines is finding them, as the tiny production is eagerly snapped up upon release by a near-cult following of clientele around the world." - Peter Liem
An exceptional champagne, Bertrand’s multi-vintage cuvée is made from 100% Chardonnay from Oiry, Chouilly, and Cramant. The wine matured 2 years on the lees in a cool hand dug tuffeau cellar. Precise and elegant, this is a champagne with fine perlage and chalky structure.
