2014 LES HAUTES BLANCHES VIGNES
The 2014 Brut Nature Les Hautes Blanches Vignes is the first wine I have tasted from Christophe Baron’s new project in Champagne, and it is magnificent. From a tiny parcel measuring just 0.6 hectares (1.48 acres), Les Hautes Blanches Vignes is 100% Pinot Meunier from vines planted in 1969 with a massale selection that was common at the time. Bright, focused and chiseled, the Hautes Blanches Vignes has a level of energy and tension that is simply unreal. Pure Meunier Champagnes have gained in popularity in recent years, but rarely have I seen this degree of focus and vibrancy. Moreover, I am just blown away by the wine’s textural elegance and persistence. All the elements come together in an extraordinary Champagne that drips with class...If the debut release is any indication, Champagne Christophe Baron has a very bright future. The 2014 Les Hautes Blanches Vignes is off the charts great. Don’t miss it! Drink 2020-2030 –Antonio Galloni, Vinous
