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 

Vinous 92 points

Disgorged in July 2020 with two grams per liter dosage and based on the 2017 vintage, Dhondt's NV Extra-Brut Dans un Premier Temps (2017) exhibits aromas of citrus oil, almonds, white flowers, mint and honeyed pears, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy palate that's bright and pillowy, with chalky grip and a saline finish. Open and charming, it is vinous and seamless, offering a fine introduction to the domaine's style. As usual, it's a blend of Chardonnay from the Sézannais with Pinot Noir from Avenay Val d'Or and Pinot Meunier from Cuis.- William Kelley
