This is a delicious Champagne from the great 2008 vintage.
Light yellow in color with a golden hue.
Medium plus in body with small bubbles and medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant and complex.
Showing bruised apples, yeast, citrus, brioche, spices, minerals, sea salt, light river rocks, earth and white pepper.
Long finish with limes and almonds.
This 15 year old Champagne is rich and very enjoyable by itself or with food.
Nicely balanced and concentrated, with nice complexity and mouthfeel.
Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.
I paired it with light appetizers.

The NV Brut Réserve (magnum) is gorgeous. Rich and opulent, the 2019 base captures the natural opulence of the year in its soft curves and engaging personality. Dried pear, crushed flowers, spice and light hazelnut notes. Brut Réserve in magnum is always one of my favorite wines at Bérêche, as it is a hidden gem in the range. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: November 2022. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2023) — 3 days ago
