'12 Ans de Cave a Minima' Brut

Grapes Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Champagne
ABV 12%

The deep golden colour promises the richness that nose and palate duly deliver. The first sniff reveals rounded generosity reminiscent of shortbread, further swirling brings yellow apple with overtones of ripe apricot. That apple and apricot combo settles into a mid-palate mellowness, edged and enlivened by smooth bubbles that frame all this richness with their welcome freshness. Indeed, the wine works as an indulgent aperitif but comes into its own with food. (Anne Krebiehl MW) Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 Rating: 94 Decanter Magazine (Jul 2020)
