David Léclapart is a biodynamic Champagne house located in Trépail in the Montagne de Reims. Montagne de Reims is the home of the Pinot Noir grape, but Trépail is an exception to this rule. Trépail is a Premier Cru village that grows Chardonnay in the heart of Pinot Noir land.
This cuvée is called L’Amateur and it’s a blend of Chardonnay grapes from within Trépail.
Nose: Intoxicating flinty minerality dominates with pure green and yellow apples with some citrus overtones. Some honey notes and mushrooms in the background as you might expect to find on a developed Chardonnay.
Palate: The best way I have come to describe this Champagne when I have tasted it in the past has been to describe it as a very well made, unoaked Chablis with bubbles. Fresh minerals, yellow apples and hints of flint on the palate. Fine and elegant bubble structure.
