Sipping Fine Wine

From a blend of 100% premiers crus Chardonnay grapes from recent vintages. Grapes from vineyards Sillery and Brimont (ancestral home of the Ruinart family), and other premier sites. Fine mousse and bubble flow. Citrus and Apple flavors with honeysuckle, toasty notes and lemon rind. Well balanced with nutty character, great mouthfeel on long finish, ending with mineral and yeasty tang. Nice!

Gorgeous, delicate nose. Precise crisp yellow fruits, clean limestoney minerality, and a spring meadowy thing. Mouthfilling but light at the same time. Great length. I hope 2019 is as good as this.

Oh wow. Lovely notes of fresh toast, brioche and almonds on the nose.
Very energetic on the palette, with hints of yeast and honey. Very impressed with this example.

Indisputably the crown prince of champagne. Very crisp, slightly sweet and at a very fair price point.

Straightforward Champagne. Always good but boring.
