A very intense Champagne and not what I was expecting. A true powerhouse and rich style. This is a Champagne that needs a meal. A rich meal and would pair well with the main dish. A ton of cherry juice on this, which is something I can't recall experiencing with Champs ever. I love the Bouchard philosophy and admire his wines.
This wine was a head turner with its off the charts zingy energy. By the same token its still a bit youthfully bright and another couple years wouldn't hurt a bit. This has Grand Cru depth with; kaleidoscopic flavors, drive and length. There is so much going on here! Paid $60 and tonight it easily drank like $100 plus. I will seek out more btls from this producer. Major palate reverb! This has improved so much since an earlier btl opened 20 months ago.
Champagne & Sushi (Masu, Mpls, MN): Pale to light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 30 minutes. Another bright nose and -palate, reminded me of the Bonville BdB, floral, light, elegant, very tasty, mineral, pear, tart apple, medium plus finish.
