H. Blin, L’Esprit Nature Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Champagne, France
Tasting Note: A good, straight-forward Champagne with some hints of the yeasty flavors one enjoys in the style.
Pale-intensity gold in color with medium-sized bubbles, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of bread dough, green apple and pear.
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.
Would make a good bistro Champagne by the glass and would pair with many a dish.
Bottle Note: Wine made with organic grapes. 100% chardonnay. Minerality and freshness characterize this 100% certified organic chardonnay. 20% oaked. It is perfect as an aperitif and an excellent match with seafood and grilled fish.
