Just take a look at this color. So striking. So sexy. Nice perlage and cream. The nose is so crisp and fresh. Pears and lively red cherries alongside mangoes. Freshly baked bread aromas are very nice here, as well are the grapefruit and strawberry.
Yet another young hotshot champagne maker, Aurelien Gerbais from the Aube. A friend and neighbor of Cédric Bouchard and that’s all you need to know. 50/25/25 PN/CH/Pinot Blanc with an extra brut dosage of 3 g/l. The low dosage avoids the trap of being austere, but rather it’s an inviting and gracious Rosé. The addition of 10% Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir gives it that beautifully sexy color and viscosity.
Dry with breathtaking acidity, the terroir really speaks here. The palate follows the nose with more summer berries and light yeast. So lovely, so sleek. Good sex in a bottle. If you see these, get them. — a month ago
One of the best and finest blanc de blancs there is. Lush and rich but with great finesse, a fruit bomb that oozes its soil and minerality, medium bodied so its great with food but can be enjoyed by itself. We love it and think is a great chardonnay champagne. — 19 days ago
Shockingly open from the first pour. Would have thought it would need a great deal of time in the decanter before it unfurled but this was showing beautiful right away. Super expressive nose of violets, black olive, red fruit, iron and crushed stones. The palate is deep and concentrated with lovely texture that’s complimented with fresh acidity. Finishes long, lifted and balanced. This was fantastic with the beet course as they had a matching ‘meatiness’ to them. Love these wines. — 23 days ago
