Champagne Marie Demets Tradition Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe Demets family has been growing vines in in Gyé sur Seine in the heart of the Côte des Bar since the 1950s. In the early 1970s they started to think of releasing their own wines, which was a dream realized in 1987, their first vintage. Entirely pinot noir, this spent two years on the lees and has 9 g/l dosage. Floral red currant and cherry fills this expansive and generous fizz, based on a lightly toasty palate, and seasoned with wild blackberry and hawthorne. The texture is a tad rustic, calling out for pairing with lighter pork or duck dishes.Tasted: 09 August 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
