Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Some awesome things going on with this champagne:

Grower Champagne
Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
<$50

It's a soft, simple, velvety champagne. Light on its feet with very creamy soapy bubbles, and well applied acidity to clear it away - baked apple, apricot, cinnamon, brioche, flint, white flowers, honeycomb - about 9g dosage, so not on the dry side of Brut, but not near Extra Dry.

Just beautiful juice for the price - it's not toasty and intense, it is a soft and pretty style, but a great example of Chard from Avize - Oger.

Happy Valentines Day!

Rosé Vintage Champagne Blend 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — 2 days ago

Avizoise Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2006

Valentines Day tipple on Thursday. Pale Gold with fine bead. Yeasty notes with aromas of Lemon, Apple skin and mineral. On the palate - Powerful, not sweet, acid, reflecting a low dosage of 3g/L. Finishing with a dry chalkiness. A good future assured. — 20 hours ago

Цедра желтого грейпфрута, «лимонные дольки», бледный апельсин, зеленые фисташки, хлеб, эстрагон. Полно, ярко, мягко и ласково. Хорошо, но чуть упрощенно, без элегантности.

Ultradition Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Chardonnay

Crisp apple nose and tart pear delicacy on the palate. Small, elegant bubbles and dry. Paired well with salmon; would pair well with light apps/charcuterie. Thinking this would be a great hot-summer-day champagne as it is bright and not sweet, rather than a good toasty champs for winter. — 12 hours ago

Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

It's sunny and just over 30°F today, so fire in the chimnea time! First flames of 2019.

Nose has warmed pear spread on lightly toasted brioche, lemon curd lite and wet limestone.
Palate has great mineral core surrounded by ripe pear, under-ripe yellow apple and touch of pineapple core.

Great bottle to start our afternoon.

Lots of funk on the nose but after you get past that it’s got great concentration of flavors with good weight on the palate. — 5 days ago

Apollonis Les Mutines Palmyre Brut Nature Chardonnay Pinot Meunier

DD: 07.2017

Лимон, неспелый жёлтый грейпфрут, яблоко, белый хлеб, фисташки, базилик, легкая горечь в послевкусии. Сухо, с чуть нервной кислотностью. Тонко и дрожаще, с голой костью, интенсивно, без большой глубины, довольно просто, но не глупо.
