Aromas of ginger, sliced dried pineapple, mango and tea. Lightly yeasty. Full body, dense and intense. Very fresh and flavorful. Tangy acidity. Very long finish. A vibrant and delicious Cristal.
Chardonnay 40% and Pinot Noir 60%
L. Aubry Fils Brut Premier Cru is an austere, structured Champagne with a rich grain element interwoven with cherry, apple, wildflower and almond notes. This is a distinctive, expertly crafted sparkling wine that will vastly enhance a meal of albacore or oysters. Though the blend is carefully adapted from year to year.
45% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 5% Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau.
An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now. (94 points James Suckling)
45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier
The NV Brut Special Cuvee is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range.
60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier
