TASTING NOTES

 

A clean and pronounced yellow color with bright silvery flecks highlighted by a multitude of fine, airy bubbles.

 

The nose is, at first, marked by aromas of stewed apples, tarte tatin, mirabelle plums and crystallised quince and then evolves to more tropical scents of roast pineapple, sweet almonds, pink grapefruit, kiwi, bitter orange, pepper and forest fruits.

The palate is supple and clean, the bubbles soft and creamy; soon an intense fruitiness develops   evoking the taste of fresh, crunchy fruit and fruit purée with the slight sharpness of grapefruit and cherries underneath. The earthy sensation of the clay and chalk soil gives presence and breadth in the mouth heightened by a pure, thrusting acidity. The finish is clean, rich and full of flavour with a pleasant hint of bitterness that contrasts with the lingering aromas of ripe fruit. A beautifully satisfying sensation of lightness and elegance with a final reminder of forest fruit.

 

This vintage champagne from 2007 shows an almost tangible fruitiness and rich acidity, the two wonderfully  woven together to produce a towering finish. Serve at between 10 and 12°C. Suggested food matches include the following:
