Jean Vesselle Brut Réserve Champagne Magnum
|Region||France, Champagne, Bouzy|
Winemaker Notes :
A magnificent, elegantly structured Champagne that exudes flavors of peach, crisp apple and toast. A finely balanced, fresh Champagne that spends 30 months on lees. This 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay blend (from 30+-year-old vines) drinks like a vintage wine. Honeysuckle blossoms tickle the aromatic nose. Toasty, lovely notes of warm, crusty oatmeal biscuits drizzled with molasses and sweet, red fruits characterize the bountiful, layered mouth.
The most open-knit and easygoing, the NV Champagne Reserve Brut is 80% Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay and has 11 grams per liter dosage. Pale straw with a golden hue. the nose is rounder here, with ripe raspberry, golden apricot, and tangerine. The palate is dry, although it has roundness from the dosage which lends more ripe orchard fruits, plum, and pink grapefruit citrus through the finish. Drink over the next 10-15 years.
