…The trend continues today on Thanksgiving
It seems like almost every day I am finding new reasons to sip some Champers and new Champers to sip and some not Champagne at all…
A few from the last ten or so days.
NV JB Adam Cremat de Alsace Rose: Pinot Noir sparkler from Alsace… pretty cool. This wine was pretty salmon color, it was smooth and creamy with strawberry fruit and cream, fine bubbles and a full and delicious swallow. Definite repurchase.
2008 Lallier Grand Cru Brut: Really nice, classic, with hints of green apple, apple skin, white cherry, and red at the edges, hints of mineral, clay dust, bread… yum!
NV Mousse Fils Noire Reserve Bland de Noirs : Another great Champagne!. This is cool and different to me, as I am not used to the blend. I still like it plenty.The fruit seems cooler, and more toward the white tea spectrum. It is still crisp and inviting, but in a “thinner” way. I would try again.
NV Demière-Ansiot Champagne Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs: Crisp apple, sweetish, in a great way, toast, hint of pear, hint of mineral dust. Lovely really. Wish I had more.
2011 Pehu Simonet Champagne Grand Cru Fins Lieux No 1 Verzenay Millésime: Delicious, full bodied, with red “thoughts” at the edges. Buy again for sure.
NV Billecart Salmon Rose: 4 bottles. This is so good. I love the light pink sapphire hue. This is crisp with light red fruit perceptions, and a lode car full of chalky, dusty, minerals! Hint of light toast bread, and a crisp snappy generous finish. Very consistent are the first four bottles!
NV Lambert de Seyssel Seyssel Petit Royale: This is a pretty Traditional Methode sparkler from Savoie. I don’t even know the grapes:70% Molette, 30% Altesse. This is Delicious and reminded me of Bulles from Merieoux in Touraine. Is is light and crisp with apple skin and white cherry perceptions. Very cool and refreshing. I will buy this again for sure.
2009 Meßmer Spätburgunder Rosé Sekt Brut: This is super good. It has a very dark pink rose color. It is full bodied, with bright red strawberry and cherry skin thought and aromas. There are iron and granite mineral perceptions, very full and zippy in the mouth. Definitely worth a flyer if you haven’t had one yet. I would buy again for sure.
NV Paul Clouet Grand Cru Brut Rose: This is a smashing bottle of rosé! Very bubbly, with sharp and delicious red fruit perceptions. Rose cream, tart strawberries, zippy… great Champagne. I love Bouzey…
Today I going big with Douquet 2004 and Dom Rose 2004.
Hope everyone has a terrific day.
