Champagne Moutard Pere et Fils Brut Grande Cuvée NV

Champagne, FranceThis blanc de noirs (100 percent pinot noir) was entirely sourced from the clay-limestone soils of the Côte des Bar and the villages of Buxeuil and Polisy. There's a lovely tension between tight lemon peel and rich cherry brioche which welcomes investigation, and a second glass. Three years on the lees, and a 10 g/l dosage reveals itself in the proliferation of roasted almonds and hazelnuts, bread dough, toasty ginger spice, all nipped tight with prickling acidity. Fantastic price for a Champagne ready to match grilled / spiced chicken or roasted winter squash. The Moutard family have been making wine since the seventeenth century, and this is their flagship wine.Tasted: 01 December 2018Tasted by: Prices:
