Carte Blanche Brut Champagne Blend

Had this NV about three years ago and tried their new batch. The Carte d'Or cuvée has a very high proportion of Pinot Noir, which is “the Drappier style.” Aromas of stone fruit and spice in a light frothy mousse. On the palate peach, plum and raspberry with citrus zest and earthy spice. Nice flow of bubbles lead to a lingering finish ending with toasty notes. From my ‘16 notes very consistent house quality style. Nice! — 5 days ago

Fantastic bottle of champagne that everyone enjoyed. Has a slight savoury twang but isn’t overly dry. We drank this on NYE and it was the perfect start to the party! I would certainly buy again. — 9 months ago

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

I’ve avoided this Rosé Champagne from Veuve Clicquot like the plague. However, time to try it.

It’s classic Rosé style but, light all the way around. It’s quaffable but, at this price point, I’m not giving up my BSR, Ruinart, Drappier etc.. There simply is no wow factor here. For me, all of their cuvées just don’t deliver the quality like other producers in and around their price points.

However, they have a beautiful property and amazing caves.

Is it Friday again? Yeah, I think it’s Friday. 🍾🥂

Bought this at Costco for under $40. Good at regular price, better at under $40.

The nose is showing more blood orange than memory recalls currently. Orange, tangerine, kirsch, rhubarb, strawberries and plenty of watermelon. Nice medium chalkiness, volcanic minerals and shells. Baguette crust, zesty cola and almost liqueur notes with red & pink roses.

The palate is rich and flows nicely. There is elegance and beauty here. The fruits are a little candied...roll up like. Blood orange. orange, tangerine, kirsch, rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries and plenty of watermelon. Nice medium, grainy chalkiness, volcanic minerals and shells. Baguette crust, zesty cola and almost liqueur notes with red & pink roses. The acidy is perfect. The finish is; long, well balanced with elegance and polish for days.

Pairs well with, Maxwell’s song, 🎶 Each Hour, Each Second, Each Minute, Each Day. 🎶

Photos of; the House of Drappier, cellar shots and their extremely chalky caves.
