Flight 1 (2 notes)
White - Sparkling
N.V. Henriot Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut
Intense, bright yellow colour. Has a considerable weight of ripe fruit, crisp acidity, lovely mineral energy, real depth of flavour with a hint of spice. Harmonious, with good length. Just lacks a little complexity or definition for a higher score.
2007 Domaine Aleth Girardin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches
Immediately attractive, fresh nose of flowers, spice, minerals and red and black fruits; on the palate all about elegance, minerality and freshness, light weight, has bright acidity and good grip bur also a slightly drying quality and a hint of stalkiness, flavours of flowers and red berries; excellent length.
