NV Le Grand Courtage Grande Cuvee Blanc de Blancs Brut, France (750ml)
"Perfumed and crisp, white rose petals and vanilla’d peach loom in the glass and bless the palate. Dainty bubbles pop with grace and reveal notes of aromatized lemon tart." Tasting Panel, 92 pts
The bouquet presents hints of green apple, honeysuckle, and toasted brioche. On the palate, a delicate balance of dryness and acidity lingers with a bit of Meyer lemon, honeydew and soft floral notes.
The Blanc de Blancs Brut is very cuisine and cocktail-friendly. Try it with savory hors d'oeuvres, buttered popcorn, creamy pasta dishes, fried chicken, spicy Asian dishes, seafood, fruit-based desserts or semi-soft cheese. Mix with elderflower or fruit liqueurs, or fresh juice and quality spirits for a light, refreshing sparkling cocktail.
The Blend: Chardonnay imparts depth and complexity for the overall balance while Chenin Blanc lends citrus and hints of honey for a creamy texture. Colombard's higher acidity provides structure, length and a pleasant minerality that is supplemented by the Ugni Blanc's fruit profile. Grapes are sourced from quality terroirs in France, such as Burgundy and Loire Valley.
