The vineyards of Le Mesnil sur Oger are truly extraordinary, 100% of the vineyards are ranked Grand Cru. The village is situated in the heart of the prestigious Cote des Blancs, named for the Chardonnay grapes that grow there. Mesnil has of course been made famous by the rare and expensive bottlings by Krug and Salon of Clos de Mesnil.

Le Mesnil's Non Vintage Blanc de Blanc pours beautifully boasting an excellent white frothy mousse, showing good hold, followed by a straw, pale gold base wine.
This "Blanc De Blancs" Champagne is made by blending various parcels of Chardonnay specially selected for their finesse and ethereal qualities, giving the wine, complex and mouth-watering flavors, all from the vineyards of Le Mesnil, 100% Grand Cru and a fraction of the cost those celebrated bottlings.
