Mailly, Exception Blanche Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne 2009, France
Tasting Note: A Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne that delivers on the promise of its classification and on a very special day.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of caramelized apple, green pear, bread dough, brioche, lemon-citrus peel.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Champagne has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.

Bright with some airiness.
