- A rare 100% Pinot Blanc champagne
- Highly aromatic, richly textured and suited for those who prefer slightly sweeter champagne
- Pair it with Honeydew Melon and prosciutto with some toasted ciabatta. Simple, refreshing with enough saltiness to offset the champagne.
Pinot Blanc is rarely seen as a mono-varietal in champagne as its home is usually in Alsace.
The nose is exotic, lots of floral and honeyed aromas leading to honeydew melon, yellow grapefruit and a combined bakery/spice like nose similar to that of - Tipsy Cake - Pineapple with bread and butter style pudding.
The palate is light yet showing some weight and a creaminess to the finish. Notes of 'juicy-fruit' gum and pineapple showing some more of that tropical note.
My only gripe is that with such an interesting and rare variety, does the dosage need to be so high? Either way, it drinks well and suits as an excellent aperitif.
