Newsletter: 2018 Alexandre Lamblot 'Intuition' Brut Nature

Wine, like nature, is cyclical, and as you may have learned from reading these newsletters, I'm constantly on the hunt to uncover the brightest new stars. Always digging to unearth the women and men who are creating remarkable, and at times like these, momentous new wines. Whether developing new farming methods and winemaking techniques, or returning to ancient, pre-industrial traditions, these vignerons inspire me, and I love sharing their stories with you. 

Enter today's Champange from Alexandre Lamblot, a young man descended from a long line of winemakers, whose wines have been blowing me away since his first vintage.

His Champagnes seem to wrap modern palate sensibilities around a deep core of tradition, and this wine exemplifies this young man's genius to a T. It's a Champange that somehow delivers old school power and complexity with beautiful fruit freshness and mineral detail in perfect balance. This is a serious, jaw-dropping wine that should be a must for any lover of Champange.  
A classic Champange blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All farmed with a mix of biodynamics, agroforestry, and other experimental methods to support vineyard health. The grapes are hand-harvested and ferment separately in a mix of steel tanks and used barrels for 11 months before bottling for secondary fermentation. Aged on the lees for 36 months then disgorged in 2021 with no added sugar. 

An effusive nose of fresh cut pears, marzipan, baking spice and brioche, as though walking into a patisserie. More orchard fruit and almond notes can be found on the palate, supported by chalky minerals and striking freshness. The star here is ultimately the stunning tension and complexity as the layers of flavor, body, minerality and concentration all coalesce into a complete, seamless drinking experience. A true wow wine. 
Alexandre Lamblot represents the 13th generation of vignerons in his family. After working with the legendary Jérôme Prévost at La Closerie, Alexandre took over the family's 3.8 hectares in various plots around Janvry, Gueux, Vrigny and Chenay. His primary objective is to express terroir and vintage, a rarity in Champange where blending vintages and plots is the norm. His motto is simple: 'ne rien s'interdire, ne rien s'imposer' - do not forbid or impose anything. Alexander's wines are an eye opening experience, and he is a shining beacon for the future of this historic land.
