Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Champagne Blend

I don’t remember buying this or if it was a gift. However, I have ignored it for sometime. Hazards of loving Champange...especially, Rosé.

This is not really our style as it falls into more oxidation than we like. But, still enjoyable.

The nose reveals, bruised green-golden apple & Bosc pear, some apple cider, sour pineapple, lemon chiffon, white citrus blend, bread dough, baguette crust, nougat, sea spray, crumbled chalkiness, grey volcanic minerals, withering, yellow lilies and spring flowers.

The body & mouthfeel are nice. Bruised green-golden apple & Bosc pear, some apple cider, sour pineapple, lemon chiffon & poppy cake, cream, butter notes, white citrus blend, bread dough, warm toast, nougat with nuts, brown sugar spice w/ a little palate heat, vanillin notes, touch of butterscotch & caramel, sea spray, crumbled chalkiness, grey volcanic minerals, withering, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The acidity is good just not as lively as I like. The finish is rich, polished, well balanced and quite nice, just not outstanding.

Producer notes; In 1840, Jean Febvre, a barrel cooper from Montbard, founded the winery that is now Maison Simonnet-Febvre. It was exclusively specialized in the making of sparkling wines using the so-called “Traditional Method”.

Maison Simonnet-Febvre owns vineyards in Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru “Mont de Milieu” and Chablis Grand Cru “Les Preuses”. It produces and vinifies a large range of different wines from the diverse “terroirs” of the Chablis region.

Maison Simonnet-Febvre was purchased by Maison Louis Latour in 2003.

@Delectable Wine this is a new producer. Nicolas Champagneaux. What a wine. I love this in 2016. Gorgeous nose. Little bit of wood, zany florals, complex violets and iris, wow, some game, so bright, palate is an exercise in finesse and precision. Juicy and linear but with just unreal finesse and precision. Fresh and juicy with lovely almost cassis fruit and light blackberry. Gorgeous. Needs a bit of time to integrate the wood but it is all there. Very precise and lingering finish. — 8 days ago

Domaine Giacometti

Cru des Agriates Patrimonio Rouge Nielluccio Grenache

Brought back in my suitcase from the Domaine in Corsica.... on the nose smokey dark fruit and roses. In the mouth dark spicy fruit, floral with grippy tannins, good acidity and a touch of heat. Good wine with a sense of place. Might be a tad too young. — a month ago
