Comtesse Gérin, Grand Réserve Champagne, France
Tasting Note: A tight, delicate, reserved, Meunier-forward Champagne that indulges more in fruit rather than yeast.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of green apple, pear, brioche, blossom and toast.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Champagne has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a medium finish.
A mostly straightforward Champagne with flavor precision.
Bottle Note: Grande Réserve is blended 50% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. This Champagne will delight your senses with its freshness and fruity flavors. Sparkling wine – serve at 44°F (8°C).
