90 Point Blanc de Blancs from Thevenet

NV Thevenet Blanc de Balncs....$23.99
Thevenet's Champagne look-alike, the N.V. Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay Brut is a delicious, frothy, light-bodied, ripe, super-clean, and expressive, dry Chardonnay. It possesses an attractive honeyed note for added richness, but the overall impression is one of gorgeously fresh, light, effervescent Chardonnay presented in a light-bodied, delicate format. Drink it over the next several years. Thevenet is one of the bright shining stars of the Maconnais, producing wines of much higher quality than readers might expect can be achieved in this vast ocean of vineyards just north of Lyon.
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
