What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
The “Champs de Cri” is an important parcel of 2.3 hectares known in Les Loges as the site that produces the most elegant and long-lived of the wines of this appellation. Deschamps’ holdings are exclusively old vines with an average age of 55 years (as of 2012). Out of respect for the complexity and depth of this wine, Deschamps leaves this wine in contact with the lees for several months more than his other cuvées and it is released for sale later than the other wines of the estate. It is frequently marked by notes of bitter orange, jasmine and beeswax. We are privileged to be allocated 6000 or so bottles per annum for the US market.
Elegant , Herbaceous , Minerally
Very easy drinking in the French style - worthy example of the region's wine
