Colmant Absolu Zero - 95 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Even better than the delicious previous release, this is based on the 2012 vintage and spent 87 months on lees before disgorgement. Showing the freshness, focus and ageing potential of all great Blanc de Blancs, it's nutty and complex with salty, tangy minerality, notes of fresh bread and patisserie and an assertively bone-dry finish. 2020-25"

Colmant Absolu Zero - 96 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Recruiting top MCC expert Paul Gerber was quite a coup for Jean-Philippe Colmant and seems to be paying dividends in the bottle. Very lightly wooded, this bracingly dry all-Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs uses fruit from Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin, with 16% reserve wine dating back to 2006. Structured, bready and bracingly taut, with aniseed and citrus flavours, subtle autolysis and a lingering finish. Sublime stuff. 2022-30"
