Alfred Gratien Brut Millesime, Champagne, France 2012

Champagne, France


Tasting Notes

This wine is pale gold in colour. Its effervescence is measured and builds to a fine mousse.At first, the nose is led by toasted almonds and russet apples and then evolves aromatically to offer floral and savoury notes. Iris, orange blossom and ladyfinger biscuits assert themselves. Gradually, flint and citrus zest come to the forefront, with toasted almond providing the backdrop.The exuberant initial taste and effervescence blend immediately into the body of the wine. The body is vibrant and accompanied by a fine acidity, which lends the tasting experience rhythm. The dosage dissipates, and the overall impression is a very delicate. The finish is taut and fairly long, with acidic and mineral notes.
