Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: A pale yellow Champagne with very light, abundant bubbles which rise steadily to form a fine mousse. The pure bouquet opens with a contrast between an already well-developed intensity and a finesse that reveals aromas of pears, greengages and white flowers. After a little time the intensity presents the aromatic richness
and maturity of a wine that is already expressing great potential. On the palate, a lively, direct, precise attack is dominated by flavours of candied lemon zest and fresh pineapple. The mid palate is fresh and balanced. The overall impression is of generosity, voluptuousness and volume, highlighted by characteristic grapefruit and citrus notes. The zesty finish is long, lingering and complex. This Champagne’s marriage of finesse and aromatic intensity is a promise of further potential, but already offers very pleasurable drinking.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Pairing: Perfect for a truly special celebration, this Champagne would also go very well with a starter based on seafood, shellfish or fish.
