The NV Extra Brut Assemblage Dans un Premier Temps is a blend of 50% Chardonnay from Sezanne, 30% Pinot Noir from Avenay val d'Or and 20% Meunier from Cuis with the Chardonnay very much front and center in the wine's floral and citrus/driven profile. Bright, focused and tightly wound, this gorgeous, entry-level Champagne from Dhondt-Grellet hits all the right notes. This release is 70% 2016 and 30% perpetual reserve going back to 1986. The low dosage of 4 grams per liter adds to the wine's taut feel. Disgorged: March, 2019. - Antonio Galloni

The forthcoming release of the NV Brut Dans un Premier Temps (2016) is based on the 2016 vintage, with the usual one-third of reserve wines from the domaine's solera. Unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus oil, crisp green apple, orange rind and chalky, it's full-bodied, satiny and layered, with racy acids and excellent concentration. This bottle was disgorged in March 2019 with two grams per liter dosage. - William Kelley
