The 2014 Extra Brut Special Club Blanc de Blancs L'Angélique is a brooding, powerful Champagne. Low dosage gives the Angélique a feeling of searing intensity. Even so, there is plenty to admire in this Chardonnay from vineyards in Verzy. The L'Angélique is not an easy wine to taste, but it sure has a lot of personality. I would open it well in advance. Dosage is 1.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: July 1, 2019.
