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. This was vinified in stainless, and spent 2 years sur lattes prior to disgorge, with 8 g/L. Rich and doughy, with red apple, toast, lemon pith across an expansive palate, held in check by Sezanne's chalky underpinning. Really lovely balance between the depth of fruit and the tightness of chalk here.Tasted: 09 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
