Tasting Note: Incredible energy and finesse from the get-go, with copious amount of hazelnuts and sea breeze leading to a formidable acid backbone. Palate of breadth and depth, this wine does not practise solera. The amazing complexity and length shows amply, the wine making skills of the freshly crownded 2017 Wine Maker of the Year! Ultra limited with less than 1000 bottles produced.
Adrien Dhondt took over his parents’ estate in 2010. Barely in his mid-twenties, Adrien has transformed the estate into an ‘up & coming’ star of Champagne. Needless to say, our 2016 allocation were duely snapped up. The world soon noticed and Michelin-starred restaurants including Lung King Heen (The only 3-star Canontese restaurant), Atlas Bar Singapore started listing Dhondt-Grellet.
