About This Wine...
“Made only in exceptional years. Blend of 50% Chardonnay grands crus from Côtes des Blancs, Chouilly, Avize, and Mesnil-sur-Oger, and 50% Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims, Mailly Champagne, Verzy and Verzenay. 12 years on lees. Hemera is the goddess of light. Oak? No, I’m told, but apparently because of Mesnil-sur-Oger it’s not that fruity. Quite rich and ambitious. Drink 2016 – 2026.”
17/20 Jancis Robinson
“Only produced in the top years, this wine, named apparently after the Greek goddess of daylight, has just achieved maturity. It is rich in notes of almonds and toast that meld together with the ripe white fruits. It’s a great wine that is impressive and ready to drink, although it will also easily age further.”
