This has a rich mouth-feel, great complexity, and acids to hold up to the richest food pairing. Drink with stuffed flounder. Highly Recommended (93).
The graceful mineral acidity in the finish makes continued sipping irresistible. Very Highly Recommended (96).
Aged for 3 to 4 years, it has a certain complexity, with a beautiful, almost sensual texture, yet also a touch of citrus and apple. Being a brut, it is truly dry, just well-rounded by the aging. Very solid for the price. Delicious with dry-cured ham, chorizo, marcona almonds, olives, etc.
Here in Champagne, one often says that champagne is first and foremost a wine. However the characteristics of this wine change significantly with the adding of the dosage (a mixture of base wine and cane sugar) at the time of disgorging.
