|BRUT CRÉMANT DE BORDEAUX Traditional method, AP, Bordeaux, France
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Pale straw colour. Very attractive, toasty, ripe lemon meringue nose with some spicy mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured albeit quite elegant, slightly spicy, tangy, ripe lemon meringue flavours with a lingering, high acid, gently complex, somewhat toasty finish. Has very good effervescence. If you like Champagne, you will love this Bordeaux Brut! A remarkable blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Cabernet Franc with 12% alcohol and 14 g/L residual sugar with lot number L80524M02 on the capsule. TONY ASPLER / 90-points / BEST BUY - Toasty, faintly honeyed, dried ripe apple peel bouquet; medium-bodied, dry, remarkably elegant for the price - a ringer for Champagne.
Dry, Well Structured, Ripe, Effervescent

A Best Buy
|TASTING NOTE: A blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Cabernet Franc from a producer that dates back to 1821. This superb value is delightfully toasty with nice apple and stone fruit tones and a refined mineral underbelly that really holds the attention. Zesty and crisp, it's perfect for starters or with seafood. (Vintages panel, July 2017)
