Wine type: champagne - Blanc de Blancs Vintage
Vintage and alcohol content: 2009 - 12°
Region: Grands and Premiers Crus de la Marne - France.
Grape/blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay,
Type soil: cold beauty and south-facing clay hillside.
Colour: Champagne gold colour with slightly copper tints.
Aroma: complex, generous and deep, dominated by red fruits (raspberry) and orchard fruits (nectarines, golden plums), a certain smokiness (hazelnuts and toasted almonds) and a hint of sun-warmed pebbles.
Tasting notes: velvety, creamy and elegant on the palate with a mineral freshness and vertical structure very typical of Pinots noirs from Verzenay. A deep, robust and complex juice where the fruit’s sun-drenched richness is counterbalanced by the salty freshness of the terroir.
Serving suggestions: grilled fish or white meat.
