If you are into champagne or wines in fact that are mouth-filling, rich and speaks of it's origins then may we present to you, the 'Grande Reserve' from Jerome Dehours. It has 60% Pinot Meunier 30% Chardonnay 10% Pinot Noir with 26% Réserve wine from a Solera started in 1998.
Expect lifted citrus notes of orange peel and lemon rind with fleshy williams pear and yellow stone fruit; apricot. The palate flows on with these flavours with the addition of some spice and defined mineral edge.
Despite its richness and bold character, there is plenty of refreshing acidity and minerality that carries through the palate.
Be adventurous and try something new.
Food pairing suggestions: Charcuterie selection, foie gras, sardines, tuna tartare or a beef tartare.
