Augustin, Cuvée CCXIV L’Air (Air) Premier Cru Extra Brut, Champagne, France
Tasting Note: A champagne that would also be a winning afternoon-sipper because it would not tire your palate.
Light-intensity gold in color, this wine has a nose of lemon citrus.
On the palate the dry champagne is high in acidity which adapts to rather than overwhelms your palate.
The sparkling wine has tart, bright, green fruit flavors accentuated by lees notes that do not overwhelm.
This champagne is grown on 55-60 year-old vines.
