Champagne Guy Charlemagne Brut Classic NV

Champagne, FranceChampagne Guy Charlemagne was founded in 1892 in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. The estate today covers 15 hectares of vineyards, and is overseen by Philippe Charlemagne. They use only their own grapes, in this case, 50/50 chardonnay / pinot noir from their chalky/clay vineyards in Sezanne (the only cuvée of the house that doesn't come from the Côte des Blancs).This was vinified in stainless before going into bottle, where it spent two years on the lees before dosage with 8 g/l. Massive plump marshmallow, meringue, bread dough, red apple fill the cushy core. Quite expansive and toasty, and finishing a bit vanilla shortbread, courtesy of the dosage. If you like your champagnes plump and rich and a tad sweetish, look here.Tasted: 24 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 57.99 private wine shops ON 57.99 LCBO Producer: Champagne Guy Charlemagne S.A.S.Distributors: That's Life Gourmet
