Wine Review: This salmon colored Champagne was very well received by the mini-panel. It opens with many tiny bubbles and a fragrant bread dough and strawberry like bouquet. On the palate, this Champagne is light bodied, acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red apple with hints of bread dough, strawberry and a touch of plum. This classic styled Champagne finishes dry and its flavors linger for quite some time. The panel felt this Champagne would pair well with shrimp cocktail or coquille St. Jacques. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: A magnificent shade of pale pink. Delicate, luminous and transparent, brightening at the edges with hints of shimmering copper. Fine, persistent stream of bubbles. Aroma: Fresh, with great purity and true elegance. Delicately perfumed with wild strawberry and raspberry over with floral nuances of tea rose, iris and clove. Lush, fruitier notes of sour cherry and mandarin emerge, mingling with vanilla and white pepper. Taste: On the palate, this champagne reveals its full array of qualities: a vitality of structure and purity of bouquet; textural finesse and harmonious balance; nobility in its ripeness and intensity in its staying power, brightened by generous floral aromas of iris and wild violet. Full and voluptuous, with supple tannins and exceptional richness. Flavors of rose petal, lightly roasted mandarin peel and nut liqueur emerge. The finish is delicate and long, with slightly spicy flavors of anise, sweet licorice and vanilla. Serving Suggestions: Highly versatile, this prestige cuvee complements a variety of fish dishes, from salmon and monkfish, swordfish, and rainbow or smoked trout. Also enjoy with rack of lamb, rabbit terrine, duck foie gras, and sweetbreads. Pairs well with fresh, soft cheeses and fruit filled desserts.
