2008 Roland Champion Champagne Grand Cru Special Club
- Champagne Grand Cru
Community Tasting Notes 5
July 8, 2014 - Väldigt sluten flaska! Smak av äppelkart och bröd och avslutas med småbesk citrus. Med värme i glaset så smakar det av bröd och småsura äpplen och beskan har försvunnit och ersatts av ren citrus smak. Kommer garanterat vinna på lagring, men inget som jag kommer att dricka mer av. Jag var inte överväldigad av vinet och tycker jag druckit bättre 2008:or.

June 27, 2014 - 1000 cases produced. Made from 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay from Chouilly. This estate owns 18 ha spread across 40 parcels. Total production is about 7000 cases but 4000 of them are sold 'sur latte' to negociants. Only 10% of their production is exported. Aged 6 years before disgorgement. Light yellow color. Full of power and body. Notes of citrus, chalk and biscuits. Solid bead. This will need some time to show some finesse and round out. Very nice now if you like very youthful champagne but has all the parts to improve. 91+ points.

May 18, 2014 - Light yellow colour with fine and tiny bubbles.
Youthful nose showing bread, citrus and nuts. Fresh palate showing grape fruit, unripe apples and with a very crisp long finish with a hint of liquorice.

May 14, 2014 - Clean and well balanced, not that distinct autolysis, small and intense bubbles that unfortunately disappeared to fast. I would not keep this for a long time in cellar.
A really good Champagne to match with food!

May 9, 2014 - A beautiful, very young champagne. Citrus, honey and bread on the complex nose. Fresh and young but well balanced taste. Some grape in the long finish. Going to age very well. 3,5 NJP
