Champagne Nicolas Maillart Brut Platine NV

Champagne, FranceThis intense negoc champagne is an 78/16/8 pinot noir/chardonnay/meunier cuvee sourced entirely from grand and premiers crus in the Montagne de Reims, and based (35 percent) on the 2014 vintage. Traditionally, the whole is plumped with 30-40 percent barrel aged reserve wines, spends a period rounding three years on the lees, and finishes off with 6 g/l dosage. My bottle was disgorged in January 2018. In contrast to type, this is a energetic and tighter wine, with skippy lemon driving the toasted brioche, red apple, red liquorice kissed palate. Acidity is crunchy, welcoming both solo sipping and partnering with prawns through pork.Tasted: 02 November 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 67.99 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Nicolas MaillartDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
