I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary as a #smallbusinessowner (and no it’s not a wine/blogging business, this girl has other skills 😜). Naturally I had to sabre the top off a #GrandCru champagne. It’d be rude not to when your business name is @grandcrudigital right?
Definitely an intentional business name decision right there 🍾🍾
We picked up this bottle of @champagnejeanmilan Symphorine 2010 Blanc de Blancs Brut at @aucklandairport duty free for about $100.
‘Grand Cru’ translates to ‘great growth’ and it’s a term used in #Champagne (and Burgundy) to distinguish the best vineyards.
And #BlancdeBlancs means it’s made of only white grapes. Which in this case is #Chardonnay.
It was the perfect tipple to celebrate my 1 year as a biz owner anniversary. I think we had it alongside a very un-classy bbq dinner 😂
In the glass I found it a lemon-lime colour. Immediately as soon as I sniffed it I got a lovely lemon zest scent, with hints of musk candies, floral perfumes, and spiced apple - a fantastically complex and interesting nose! While in the mouth it has tons of juicy acidity that made me think of lemon juice squeezed over apples with a side of cashew crackers and a refreshing finish. Yumo! I’d by this Grand Cru again - maybe for my 13 month anniversary 😉
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. #Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
