Andre Jacquart & Fils ‘Experience’ Champagne 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs NV

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 08-Mar-2017
Full, even light yellow, with moderate bubble and bead. This has a penetrating, tight and concentrated core of white stonefruits alongside bready autolysis and a layering of spicy oak with nuances of flint and nuts providing aldehyde detail. Dry to taste, and tightly concentrated. This has depth of flavour, white stonefruits and yeasty autolysis at the core unfolding spicy oak and reductive suggestions of funk and flint. The textures are very fine and the mouthfeel enlivened by soft acidity and effervescence. Complex, oaky and idiosyncratic. From 24 ha in Mesnil and Vertus, 100% Chardonnay. 30% oak fermentation, no MLF, 4 g/L RS dosage, 5 years aging. 18.0/20 Mar 2017 RRP $64.00
