Ranked #70 of 110 N/V Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier from Champagne
Medium to light straw colour. The bouquet is straw and hay-like with a trace of honey, while the palate opens up quite sweet and is soft and rounded, with no shortage of acidity but it's in balance. A grapy, peachy flavour underlined by substantial sweetness. It needs a good chill. Modest length. A straightforward NV with freshness and drinkability.
Drink: 2020 to 2020

chardonnay clearly in the lead, speaking in articulate notes of lemon and pear, with the complexity of pinot’s red apple, and mature cellar notes of honey, cinnamon and toasted brioche. A gentle, tangy acid line keeps things lively. The dosage of 10g/ L could be lighter, leaving a sweet, candied suggestion to the finish. A crowd-pleasing blend, built on quality fruit. One bottle tasted was tired and developed, with bruised apple notes. The 2008 base vintage heightens its red berry presence, acid focus and chalk mineral mouthfeel.
